Meditation Group Starting in March!
Updated: Mar 12
Happiness is solely a matter of where you put your attention... come and explore this idea with a group of other people who are curious about how a shift in perspective could affect their daily lives. The group meets every other Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:30pm.
If you can't make that first one don't be shy we'll make it work. All the details are available on the downloadable flyer (below) as well as in this post.
Meditation Group with Paige
A twice monthly group for people interested in exploring and implementing conscious living practices within a supportive community.
Gather with a group of people who want to deepen or begin their meditation practice within a supportive community.
Explore meditation and the benefits it can have on your whole life.
Receive support through the common pitfalls of maintaining a steady practice.
Gain awareness of your “patterning” and through that awareness begin to release the hold it has on your life.
Create a community of others walking a spiritual path.
Create a system of support that you can rely on.
Use spiritual teachings to guide our conversation and sharing.
It is a journey to get to know yourself and what's going on inside, how to express it, when to ask for help, and what is "normal" versus what is cause for concern.
For all human beings that journey feels more and more complex as the world around us seems to intensify and things like "anxiety, depression, eating disorders, general discontent etc." become ubiquitous in a way that they weren't 10-20 years ago.
We cannot make the world change and slow down, but we can choose how to respond to the events and people around us. This journey begins with cultivating presence and gradually learning how to nourish our abilities to respond, rather than to react. This subtle shift in perspective makes all the difference.
Having a steady meditation practice is one of the most important tools we can choose to live from calm present awareness: that part of us that allows us to respond rather than react. But mediation alone, without practices to support us “off the cushion,” can lead people wanting. Being on this journey and exploring these practices with a group of other people, dedicated to following and living a spiritual path, is a precious gift.
What’s a group like?
Each group begins with a short meditation and meditation instruction as needed. Meditation is followed by a spiritual teaching for the evening. Participants are invited to share about their lives, based on the spiritual teaching.
For example if the teaching for the evening is about the practice of non-attachment, each person has the chance to share about their journey of non-attachment (which indeed may be a journey of lots of attachment!) and receive feedback and questions from Paige (and as the group advances from other participants).
Each group is unique to what the group members bring to it. There is no obligation to share, though with time and the building of community everyone will feel comfortable sharing with each other.
