You are invited to sit with us in meditation.
Please bring a pillow or blanket to sit on. (Some blankets will be available.)
Meditation is an age-old practice and discipline that is receiving renewed interest today, and is the subject of scientific study for its many potential health benefits. (See, for example, this compilation of resources at the U.S. National Institute of Health website: https://nccih.nih.gov/
More than a relaxation technique, it can help us to come into contact with more and more of our selves. While this may not be a comfortable process at every moment, it also carries many potential rewards on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels.* Joining with others in a group with an intent to meditate can be a powerful catalyst to one’s own practice. In the hour that we spend together, there will be a brief introduction, a seated meditation that will include verbal guidance and several minutes of silence, followed by a brief concluding circle.
If sitting on the floor is physically challenging, you are more than welcome to sit in a chair or to elevate your hips on an extra blanket or pillow.
