What we're about

Founded to provide an affirming environment for individuals who are committed to a Universalist approach to spirituality, encompassing all faiths and all traditions, and who wish to express their spirituality in a universal tradition without dogma.

PLEASE DO NOT JOIN THE MEETUP GROUP IF YOU DO NOT PLAN ON ATTENDING EVENTS.

We are an independent community founded by Rev. Ed Geraty. We meet weekly for discussion and exploration of Consciousness, Awareness, or Enlightenment. We are an awakening community, meaning that we are aware that we are more than our personal Ego-self.

Some of our meetings focus on Non Dual spirituality. We have a monthly movie night with movies based on Consciousness exploration. We also hold Kirtans (Bhakti Yoga) and weekly Insight Meditation sittings. Join us.

We are located within The Insight Center, 2 Oakway Road, Timonium, MD 21093

Right Action and the Self: Krishnamurti Inspired Dialogue.

(COVID-19 update: Please note that our meetings will be held online until further notice. A Meetup email will go out before the gatherings with the Zoom/call-in information. Thank you for your compassion & understanding at this time.) • What we'll do Can we respond creatively to the Meditation Challenges in this quote?: Thought is the self, thought is the word which identifies itself as the 'me', and at whatever level, high or low, the self is placed, it is still within the field of thought. And the self is very complex; it is not at any one level but is made up of many thoughts, many entities, each in contradiction with the other. There must be a constant awareness of them all, an awareness in which there is no choice, no condemnation or comparison, that is, there must be the capacity to see things as they are without distorting or translating them. The moment we judge or translate what is seen, we distort it according to our background. To be is to be related, and it is only in the midst of relationship that we can spontaneously discover ourselves as we are. It is this very discovery of ourselves as we are, without any sense of condemnation or justification, that brings about a fundamental transformation in what we are -and that is the beginning of wisdom. - Krishnamurti, Collected Works, Vol. VI,220,Choiceless Awareness • What to bring • Important to know
