What we're about

Exploring career issues together is a wonderful way to get clearer about so many issues...and a great way to meet new friends.

Here's a description of some of the things we will look at:

Perhaps our greatest longing is to live a prosperous,creative and satisfying life.

Why then do we often find ourselves in jobs where we do not prosper, and that offer only minimal satisfaction or creativity?

This Meetup group can help you answer this questions through two inquiries. First, it will help you delve into your individual wants and needs, finding what it is that fulfills you, and then help translate that into real job opportunities. And second, It assists you in exploring your obstacles - what stops you from pursuing your ideas and dreams. It helps you to see, understand and penetrate long-held beliefs, conditioning and strategies that act like invisible barriers to what you really want.
Take a first step toward change by joining the Finding the Work You Love Meetup Group!

Kundalini Meditation

Subhan Schenker

The Kundalini Meditation is an active meditation, that first helps release the mind/body anxiety and stress, creating a space for relaxation and inner quietness. It consists of four stages of 15 minutes: 1. loosening the body with gentle shaking, 2. free style dance for moving the body’s energy, 3. sitting or standing silently with eyes closed and 4. deeply relaxing and letting go. The Mystic Osho, who has created this meditation has said: “When you are doing the Chaotic Meditation or the Kundalini or the Nadabrahma, these are not really meditations, you are just getting in tune. If you have seen them, it is like Indian classical musicians playing. For half an hour, or sometimes even more, they simply go on fixing their instruments. They will move the knobs, they will make the strings tight or loose, and the drum player will go on checking his drum – whether it is perfect or not. For half an hour they go on doing this. This is not music, this is just preparation. Active meditation is not really the meditation, it is just preparation. You are preparing your instrument. When it is ready, then you stand in silence. Then meditation starts. Then you are utterly there. You have woken yourself up by jumping, by dancing, by breathing, by shouting — these are all devices to make you a little more alert than you ordinarily are. Once you are alert, then the waiting. Waiting is meditation — waiting with full awareness. And then it comes, it descends on you, it surrounds you, it plays around you, it dances around you, it cleanses you, it purifies you, it transforms you.” Osho. Please be here at 5:30pm to meet the other participants and settled in. Instructions will be given in the beginning of the meditation and afterwards there is time for Q & A and a cup of tea!

Osho's Dynamic Meditation

Subhan Schenker

Dynamic Meditation is an energizing, physical meditation that opens breathing, body, and inner energies, followed by witnessing and dancing. It lasts for one hour and has five stages. It can be done alone, but it is also a very powerful and helpful experience to do it as a group. When doing this meditation in a group, the meditation remains an individual experience. Keeping the eyes closed, one remains oblivious of other participants around. Using a blindfold can be helpful to keep your attention focused inward. It is best to have an empty stomach and wear loose comfortable clothing. In the first 10 minutes there is rapid chaotic breathing; then the second 10 minutes everyon is allowed to express out loud their tears, sadness, anger, frustrations; the third stage is using a Sufi based tradition of jumping up and down with arms raised saying a mantra Hoo -Hoo; then for 15 minutes we are all very still in silence and then for 15 minutes we have free form dance celebration. This meditation technique has been scientifically designed by Osho. It is best to be done in its complete form, with nothing shortened or omitted. It has traditionally been done in the morning. But it can be done anytime you can fit it into your schedule. We present this meditation weekly as it has been for us extremely helpful and transformational! The music specially made for this meditation is available on CD or by downloading. To order Dynamic Meditation click here.

The Sacred Sharing Circle

Subhan Schenker

The emphasis of this Sacred Sharing Circle is on creating a space where each person is able to speak about whatever they wish, in a safe and non-confronting atmosphere. The group is leaderless, with each person having 10 minutes sharing; and, if the person sharing wishes , to have 5 minutes feedback as well. Each session starts with a short meditation to ground ourselves, so that we are able to speak whatever we want to share, and to listen attentively to each other. The Sacred Sharing Circle offers a safe, confidential haven for us to speak and to be seen and heard! Everything spoken by a participant is held in utmost confidence and everyone agrees not to discuss what has been said by people in the circle with others outside the circle. Of course it is fine to speak with others about your own personal sharing. During a sharing we are asked to be fully present for the person sharing. We keep our eyes on them and are open to them, without interrupting or rescuing them in any way or drawing attention to ourselves through sounds or gestures. If the one sharing feels to stop talking, it is fine to be in silence for the remainder of their time. Much can happen in that silence. It’s good to remember that there is no dialogue exchange in either the sharing or feedback time. If the person sharing wants feedback or help, they can ask for it after the sharing time is over. Feedback is most helpful when it is not loaded with advice or attempts to therapize, but rather with acknowledging what you have heard them say and suggesting an alternative if you see a possible blind spot or unconscious pattern. We ask that your feedback be as short and clear as possible so that, within the five minutes time given, there is space for others to share what they perceive. If you are the one receiving feedback, you simply receive it without responding. We offer this Sacred Sharing Circle on our schedule because we find it to be of great value in learning how to express ourselves with more honesty, and how to connect with a deeper part of who we are. We have found this practice to be extremely helpful in our day-to-day life. Cost: This cost - which goes towards maintaining the meditation spaces and park-like grounds of the Center - is $11 per meditation, or $7.00 with a 10 meditation pass, which costs $70.00.
