I have often wondered whether it would be possible to share silent space together with a group of people regularly and create a forum for enquiring and learning about the meaning of the way we live.
Our meditation group is not based on any particular ideology or belief system so that we can develop a capacity to listen both to ourselves and others without prejudice or judgement. However, teaching of world renowned teachers like the Budha,
Jiddu Krisnamurti, His Holiness the Delai Lama & Thich Nhat Hanh, will be called upon for guidance.
In our busy lives we often forget the importance of the "Stillness of Being".
The Open Circle will be daily, Monday - Friday from 7 am to 8 am. and Tuesdays at 7pm. There will be no fees, though donation towards Nepal earthquake relief would very much be appreciated.
"Meditation is one of the greatest arts in life - perhaps the greatest, and one cannot possibly learn it from anybody. That is the beauty of it. It has no technique and therefore no authority. Meditation can take place even when you are sitting in a bus or walking in the woods full of light and shadows, listening to the singing of the birds or looking at the face of your wife or child.
It is curious how all-important meditation becomes; there is no end to it nor is there a beginning to it. It is like a raindrop; in that drop are all the streams, the great rivers, the seas and the waterfalls; the drop nourishes the earth and man; without it, the earth would be a desert. Without meditation the heart becomes a desert, a wasteland."
