The Journey You Own Meditation Gathering is a free sitting meditation session to create a shared, supportive space that brings people from animal welfare together to explore grounding practices.
This one-hour session happens every last Thursday of the month between May and December, held online via Zoom. Feel free to join anonymously with videos on or off, whatever feels most comfortable to you. Attendees register once and can attend any of the monthly sessions. Come when you are able, but we do ask that you keep your microphones muted upon entry, if arriving late.
Our hour together will typically follow this structure:
- 15 minutes - Setting the view and intention
- 15 minutes - Guided meditation highlighting different types of meditation monthly
- 15 minutes - Group sharing of the experience
- 15 minutes - Group sharing of other practices we find helpful in our lives or how our own practice is evolving
