At The World of Meditation Center we practice 1 hr long meditations in a group setting at the center.
If you want to meditate but can’t sit still – then many of these meditation techniques might be perfect for you. We offer a variety of active meditations that first release mind/body stress and anxiety making it easier to settle and move inside yourself. There are 4 meditations offered during the week. (We also offer more passive meditations for those who are more easily able to sit still.)
Monday Nights – Sharing Meditation – 7 PM to 9 PM
A Sharing Meditation is 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. We start the sharing with a seated meditation process of awareness of the body. This is followed by the sharing, which is based on the structure of 10 -15 minutes sharing and 5 minutes feedback (if desired – it is optional). The sharing group is leaderless & all discussion is confidential. The Sharing Meditation has been used for many years, and is also an outgrowth of the more recent “Path of Love” Process. We offer it on our schedule because we find it to be of great value in learning how to express ourselves, and with more honestly; and in connecting with a deeper part of who we are. These lessons are extremely helpful in our day-to-day experiences.
Wednesday Evenings – Kundalini Meditation – 5:15 PM to 6:30 PM
The Kundalini Meditation: An Active Meditation to Move You Into Silence
This meditation consists of four stages of 15 minutes each and includes loosening the body, then moving the body, followed by witnessing and resting in the final two stages. It is good for releasing stress and helping your energy to open and flow.
“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)
Thursday Nights – Rotating Meditation – 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
We offer a different meditation every week (check the calendar for this weeks Meditation). The meditation can be active, passive or a mixture of both. During the summer months, we often make use of the front outdoor garden and we meditate in nature surroundings at the waterfall and creek behind the center.

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. All are welcome to experience this transformative meditation!
