We have recently started a regular meditation group that meets in the western suburbs of Cleveland. This group meets on the second Tuesday of each month, at 7:00 PM. At this point, there is not a permanent home for the meditation group, so we are meeting at different libraries on the west side. Our schedule for the nest few months is listed below. Click on the library name to get a map of the location of the library.
February - July: North Olmsted Public Library, 7:00 PM till 8:30 PM
PLEASE NOTE: Because we only meet once a month and do not always meet at the same place, we maintain a Westside Reminder email list. If you are not on the Westside reminder email list, please check our Calendar before coming to the group to be sure that we are meeting on the evening that you plan to attend.
The format for our meetings is as follows:
~ 10 - 15 minutes of sitting meditation
~ 30 - 40 minutes for dharma talk and discussion
~ 30 minutes of sitting meditation (this is often a guided meditation)
~ remainder of the time is used for discussion and questions
Our discussion time is used for questions about meditation practice, for checking in with each other on how our meditation practice is going, or for discussion of the dharma talk or guided meditation.
West Side Meditation Group
All Are Welcome
We welcome all to come and join us in meditation, whether you are new to meditation or have been practicing for years. This group often gets visitors with no meditation experience who are interested in finding out more about meditation.
If you would would like a reminder...
Because this group does not meet each week, we have a special email list that we use to send a reminder the day before we are meeting. We also use this list to send out notices if the schedule or location must change for any reason.
Each meeting we have a different topic for the dharma talk. Each session stands on its own and requires no previous experience with meditation. The summer sessions will be introductory talks and meditation practices.
