This meetup is ideal for friendly, spiritual people of all ages looking to build a community around the shared pursuit of wisdom, insight, and self-awareness. Our hope is that everyone who comes to a meetup will leave with a sense of greater purpose, mental cohesion, and optimism.
Beneath our various backgrounds and individual identities, we all share a common underlying heritage of experience: we all have desires and fears; we all seek excitement, fulfillment, novelty, companionship, and love; we are all moved by beauty; we have all lost something or someone important to us; we all face the inevitability of death; and we all wonder if there is something more – something timeless, eternal, and sacred.
Our goal for the meetup, as organizers, is to facilitate deep inquiry into these basic building blocks of experience. It is our hope that attendees will come away from each meetup having a greater sense of insight into the various internal movements that make them up.
The structure of each meetup will be discussion followed by a meditation / mindfulness exercise. In the discussion portion we will work our way toward some shared insights as a group, and in the mindfulness exercise we will observe the "psychological sediment" that has been stirred up in the process. There is great potential for permanent transformation in seeing the contents of our own experience more clearly - this is what we hope to facilitate.
This is a "rain or shine" meetup, meaning even if only one person has RSVP'd, do feel free to come anyway - we will dig into things one and one and perhaps cover a lot more ground.
Meetups will be held bi-weekly on Sunday afternoons. Snacks and refreshments will be served.
