Next Meetup

First Tuesday Book Club
Not your average book club - we focus on books with a spiritual or life-affirming message. However we are not in any way aligned with a religion or set of beliefs. We are simply an outlet for people who would like to explore the meaning of their own life. We will read and discuss a new book each month. Suggestions welcome, but you must have read the book yourself first. Books already scheduled, as follows: February - The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle March - Anam Cara, John O’Donohue April - Conversations with God - Book 3, Neale Donald Walsh There is no cost for this group but a Gold coin donation would be appreciated to cover admin costs and cost of hosting.

    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.

    Facebook page blurb: All members are welcome to join our 'Free Form Meditation Canberra' Facebook page to share meditation related quotes, articles and events to help inspire and encourage one another.
