What we're about
About the group:
Free Form Meditation is a supportive group of adults who come together each week to encourage, share and experience different styles and techniques of meditation in private homes and venues across Canberra.
While spiritual concepts can be involved, this is not a religious or political group nor is a particular style of meditation, attendance or involvement enforced. Our Values include; Respect, Compassion, Integrity, Transparency and Spiritual Independence.
Meditations will usually be from one of the following styles; Guided, Mindfulness, Breathing Focus, and Compassion. From time to time other meetings may be held on different days and times focusing on particular styles (eg. Active Meditation), Workshops, Beginners group, a particular meditation style group or Social gatherings.
A typical meeting of around 12 members involves one volunteer member leading the group in their preferred style in the home of another member. Meetings usually start at 6:30 pm on a Monday, Wednesday or Thursday and include up to a one hour presentation and meditation, a general discussion and a social chat over tea and snacks afterwards. Most meetings finish by 8:00 to 8:30 pm.
Our members come from all walks of life and meditation backgrounds from beginner to those with decades of experience. Most come to either try out the meditations, socialise with friendly and supportive like-minded people or share their experiences.
At a practical level members can contribute in various ways including: presenting, organising, providing venues, providing refreshments and contributing a gold coin donation each week to cover costs.
