What we're about

Are you interested in meditation? Do you want to meet others with similar interests? The Orlando Meditation Meetup is for you! If you have never meditated before, this is a resource to help you get started. And if you are a regular meditator, the easy access to varied group meditations will help you expand your practice. There are many styles of meditation, including mindfulness (such as the Buddhist Vipassana and Zen traditions), concentration (such as raja yoga, or modern approaches that use sound, light, or other means of inducing and supporting a sustained focus), visualization (such as guided meditations), and mantra meditation. The key is to find a meditation modality that works....for you. Explore our calendar with an open mind, and enjoy. Namaste!

Crystal Bowl Meditation
