What we're about

This meetup brings live meditation sessions to you, to inquire into the self deeply to get clarity about life. Meditation is not some tricks or methods, but a serious inquiry into the self and a total understanding of life by seeing the false in the life. Such an inquiry is possible only when the mind is free and does not follow any authority. A simple, beautiful, joyful and compassion life is possible one when the self is totally absent.

Events are free and open to donations (one can also sign up the paid event as donation)

Here is an intro video to the session from Cico, the main speaker of the live meditation session. 
https://youtu.be/Dik5V1ukey0

Cico Zhang is a human being living in truth; labels include philosopher, generalist in multiple disciplines (computer, mathematics, biology and language). He is inquiring with each attendee via the live sessions into the self for clarity, it is in simple English, which is fun, engaging, philosophical, insightful and profound.

When one is living in thoughts, one is inevitably confused about life and existence, because thoughts prevent the discovery of the truth which lies in neurons, but never in thoughts. To find out truth, one has to walk out of thoughts, the self, the ego, to observe the mind without a direction or a center. Only in that observance can one grasp how neurons work and find out truth about life. And this is the journey of meditation.

What is meditation? It is not a question that can be answered by words, which is rather meaningless; one has to find the answer from one's living -- live a life where the self is totally absent.

Please read this text below carefully if you plan to attend the session.

When one is living in thoughts, one is inevitably confused about life and existence, because the thinking activities that involve judging, condemning, excluding, calculating, speculating distort the perception and therefore create confusion about life. The truth of living is all about neurons, not thoughts.

To find out the truth is to understand life totally, one has to see the pattern of thinking, which builds up the self, the ego; this can only be done by observing the mind without a direction or a center - no judgment, or condemnation, or evaluation.

Only in that observation can one grasp totally how neurons work and deeply understand oneself. And this is the journey of meditation, not methods or paths or tricks. True meditation is a complicated business and requires a subtle and diligent mind to learn and observe.

Unlike other so-called spiritual activities, full of tricks, self-centered stuff, soothing the ego, and all the rest of it, this event is to explore the mind seriously and carefully together with you to understand the nature of mind, and get clarity about life, revealing what meditation actually is.

This clarity is the key to all life challenges. Almost all meditation practices fall into the trap of seeking an end, like well-being, self-development or whatever, which actually continues the self-deceptive activities in different ways. When the mind has clarity, a peaceful and joyful life is a natural thing.

The content of the session is deeply connected with Jiddu Krishnamurti's teaching.

Highlights:
➊ Simple English to explain the truth for clarity
➋ Guided meditation
➌ Join the session from anywhere
➍ Stereo sound experience♫, feeling like face-to-face
➎ Donation based, no string attached

What is the Zoom session like?

  1. The speaker guides the audience to meditate and explore the truth of the mind together.
  2. Attendees don’t need to speak or even turn on the webcam, if they are very shy. Feel free and at home.
  3. What attendees really need to do (extremely important) is just listen attentively, not listen to their own thoughts (which is actually not listening at all but being hijacked by words), but listen attentively to the speaker while going beyond the verbal statements and emptying and examining the mind. It is to understand what the speaker is really talking about. The whole process of doing so is meditation.

In general, who is this session for?

  1. Anyone who is eager to live a simple and beautiful life in a diligent way.
  2. Anyone who is righteous by nature and sensitive to the disorder in the world and would like to thoroughly understand the mind for clarity.
  3. Anyone who is humble, open and willing to listen; and would like to inquire independently.
  4. Anyone who would like to go beyond the superficiality to understand the world deeply.

NB, very important:
The session is not a verbal discussion group that caters to the socializing or self-expression purposes, it is for a humble self-inquiry and what the speaker says in the session is to facilitate self-observation, not for one to agree or disagree, which means the mind is trapped in words.

"Listening attentively and observing yourself beyond words" is the requirement of the mind to attending the session.

Currently, the online session does not allow for asking questions, due to the limited mental energy of the organizer who takes charge of everything in the session. In addition, the intention of asking questions means the mind stops listening attentively, which is in opposition to the purpose of this session.
