Want to meditate but can’t sit still? Then you’ve come to the right place, because we offer a variety of Active Meditations. The active meditation techniques first include some kind of physical movement or active participation of the mind and the body to release tension, anxiety and stress. Then it becomes easier for you to settle inside into the silence and stillness that is there. We also offer Passive meditations, that often are created around breathing, relaxation processes, and other more non-physical activities.
The first Wednesday (7pm-8:30pm) and Thursday (5:30pm – 7:00pm) of each month we offer an hour-long Beginner Meditation class, with extra time scheduled for connecting, answering questions and sharing a cup of tea together.
The second Wednesday (7pm-8:30pm) and Thursday (5:30pm – 7:00pm) of each month we offer an hour-long Intermediate Meditation class, again giving extra time for connecting, answering questions and sharing a cup of tea.
Each Monday Night we have a Sacred Sharing Circle – 7 PM to around 9 PM This Sacred Sharing Circle offers a safe place to learn the art of expressing your feelings and thoughts.The emphasis is on allowing expression in a safe and non-confronting atmosphere. The structure is 10 -15 minutes sharing and 5 minutes feedback( if desired). The Sacred Sharing Circle is leaderless & all discussion is confidential. We offer it on our schedule, because we find it to be most helpful in our daily lives.
On the third and fourth Wednesdays (7pm-8:30pm) and Thursdays (5:30pm – 7:00pm) of each month we offer a variety of hour-long meditation techniques, always giving extra time to connect personally, answer questions and share a cup of tea.
On Saturday Mornings is the Osho Dynamic Meditation (10:00 AM to 11:30 AM) Dynamic is a highly active and energizing meditation that opens breathing, body, and inner energies, followed by witnessing and dancing. It lasts for one hour and has five stages, and we always give extra time to connect, give the instructions and perhaps share a cup of tea afterwards.
“The Active part of the meditation is preparation for the silent, meditation space. You are preparing yourself. After the first thirty minutes, then you will be able to be in silence. Then meditation starts. Then you are utterly there. You have become very awake by loosening the body and by movement — these are all devices to make you a little more alert than you ordinarily are. Once you are alert, then the real meditation begins!” (Osho)
Please check the calendar for this weeks meditation schedule. The meditations offered can be active, passive or a mix of both. During the late spring and summer time we often meditate in the front outdoor garden or in nature in the back yard, next to the creek and waterfall.
