Will you join me in meditation?
If you are anything like me, you may struggle to keep the ordinary things of ordinary life in balance.
So many of us want to come to stillness, inside and out, but now more than ever we may be having difficulty even remembering that there is such a thing as a calm, spacious centre. I need to keep being reminded to seek that place.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, a small group has been meeting at 12 noon for 20 minutes of shared silence several times a week. Nothing fancy; please note it is not a guided meditation.
We can stop, wherever we are, for a few moments of stillness.
Let our breath and bodies come to calm, let our thoughts rest.
Let this act of silent solidarity affirm in us that we belong, and that we need each other in this life, in this community, in this world. In sickness and in health.
If you would like to join The Noon Meditation Room, please contact me via the button below to receive an invitation to a 20 minute Zoom ‘room’. You can join without obligation and whenever you wish. There is no charge.
We will not talk during this time.
I will ring a meditation bell to mark the start and end of the session,
allowing you to sit in silence with your own practice.
Apart, yet together.
Would you like to join a group of friends who simply take turns offering
space to talk, supported by each other's compassionate listening?
The Mixed Voices LISTENING CIRCLE,
opening in Spring 2021, is inviting new members.
