Meditation Mob

I hosted a public meditation on July 28th and I was surprised by the turnout and engagement.
I’ve resolved to make this a regular event.

This is about providing opportunities for practice. Anyone can come, there’s no fee (I don’t even take donations), and people can come and go as they please.

In the earliest days of the Zen tradition, this is what a lot of the old teachers did. They just wandered around and gave public teachings. And that’s what I want to do.

I’ve spent time wondering, “How can I help people? How can I serve the community?” This is it.

Public meditation events.

We’re going to show up in public spaces and sit down to meditate. I’ll give a little bit of guidance and a short talk and we’ll sit with open hearts and awakened minds.

Why?

This is about bringing some awareness and positivity in the world. It’s also about showing people the practice. People may think meditation is weird, or that you have to go to some temple or join some group or something to do it. I want to create a situation where people can just show up and sit for a little while.

Why not give it a try?

Meditation practice can be taken out into the world. And it should.

Meditation Outside the Box.

You should come.
