My First Awakin Meditation Circle
Posted by Priyanka Shruti on Mar 24, 2014
Last Wednesday 3/19/2014 I held my first circle, and seven people showed up. There were a few cancelations due to the weather, and Medina, Ohio is in the boondocks, however those who did come were glad they did. The reading for the day was the piece by Krishna Das- Practice Without Integration is a Waste. It was perfect, for the attendees had meditated alone, or have things they practice which they want to integrate, so the discussion following was wonderful. They did express that meditating for an hour was difficult for they were not used to such a long period of stillness and quiet. They did realize they needed it.
We ended with a nice dinner which my mom had prepared, and a few others had brought snacks to contribute. New connections were made and a time for quiet peaceful contemplation was found. So grateful to have found such an amazing community in Santa Clara, on here, and in Ohio!
