Come join us for an evening of silent meditation in sacred community. Silent meditation gives one the space to unfold and relax into one's natural and undivided self. This practice is excellent for maintaining a life of well being while consciously continuing along a path of self care and discovery. In practicing together, we support each other in our individual processes as well as being with what is, exactly as it is in the present moment.
This group is offered every Monday evening at 6:30 pm at the East Bay Healing Collective. This group is led in roughly a Dharma Talk style: after the meditation, the facilitator gives a talk that draws upon teachings from Buddhism as well as many other traditions from East and West.
Open to everyone and well-suited for beginners and experienced meditators alike, a typical evening includes 40 minutes of meditation, a talk inspired by various spiritual teachings, and interactive time of Q & A / discussion. One only needs the openness to sit with oneself, the curiosity to be with what arises, and the courage to be honest about what is discovered.
If you are new to meditation and would like some extra guidance or have questions, feel free to come a few minutes early and/or stay a few minutes late! Further your practice with us, or come dip a toe into a quiet reflective space and explore what is here for you.
The sangha is offered to the community free of charge. At the end of the evening, participants have the opportunity to make a voluntary contribution only if they feel moved to do so.
