Monthly - Vipassana meditation sitting
Hello fellow vipassies, We will be having a sitting last Sunday of every month. IMPORTANT: Please note that this sitting will be only for those who have completed a 10 day retreat already. Just so you have an idea of the location it is about 5 minutes walk from the intersection of Brunswick St and Kerr St in Fitzroy. I will send a message with the exact location of the meetup through the meetup app to those who RSVP YES. Please do not RSVP yes unless you can make a commitment to come, and if you change your mind later please remember to RSVP no. NO SHOW IS NOT COOL If you are catching public transport tram 11 or 96 is the most convenient.It can be a bit difficult to find parking in the area,I usually park in Coolingwood and walk. Schedule for the sitting 10.30 am : Arrive and get ready for the sitting. 10.50 am : Start noble silence. 11.00 am : Start of sitting. 12.00 pm : End of sitting. 12.00 pm : Start of metta meditation. 12.10 pm : End of metta meditation. 12.10 pm : Conversation + Lunch nearby for those that are interested Things to keep in mind. - Please be at the location by 10.30 am sharp. Arriving late will disturb others. The door will not be opened after 10.45 am. - There is a friendly dog who sometimes joins us at the sitting. - Remember to bring a cushion and a mat (yoga mat,thick towel etc..) to meditate on as some parts of the floor are not carpeted. - Please treat your fellow meditators with respect and avoid making too much noise during the sitting. - Feel free to bring some snacks to share with others. - We also usually organise a social meetup, where we go for a meal at a near by restaurant after the sitting is done. The social meetup is open for anyone to attend. Hope to see you all at the sitting :) May we all practise to the best of our abilities.

What we're about

This is a social Meetup group for anyone who does, has done or is interested in Vipassana Meditation. It is intended for people to meet up and share their experiences of practicing Vipassana or anything else. We will be meeting once or twice a month in the inner suburbs or CBD. There are social gatherings as well as group meditation sittings. Those who haven't attended a Vipassana course are welcome to join us for social gatherings but the group meditations are available for experienced Vipassana meditators only.
