Dialogue Without Words
Just being together, without speaking, quietly sitting.
Every Friday 5pm – 5.30pm (UK). Starts Fri 11th September 2020.
Join 15 minutes before the start if you wish.
Why should we meditate together?
Groups of people have come together to sit quietly since the beginning of humanity. It is a very healthy activity. We honour the silence of life as we sit, bringing our special thinking spaces and where each of our most personal, inner experiences live, which cannot ever be described or shared with words. By sharing the silence we are supported by each other in our personal thoughts and reflections and we benefit from our community of human fellowship.
What will happen and what should I do?
Join the Zoom room between 4.45pm and 5pm.
The link is below if you are logged in. A soft bell will ring at 5pm and again at 5.30pm. I will do prayer hands, which is a physical salutation to the divine within each of us. You can see others (and they can see you if your camera is on) but once you’ve had a look who else is present, I encourage you to:
– Remain alert but relaxed, (not slouching or sleeping).
– Close your eyes or soften a downward gaze, to lessen any distractions and tune in to how you feel.
There are countless meditation techniques but it is enough to just rest in awareness in our group. After some time observing your thoughts they can get quieter and deeper.
