We try to meditate together at 9PM Pacific Time on Thursday nights for 15 minutes, but you can use the meditation at any time.
Theme for October 28--November 28, 2014
: The Energy of the Very Small
Meditation usually concerns coming to a quiet place, then entering disciplined contemplation, usually involving something that is vibrant with energy. But energy is everywhere. It emerges out of the way we address the world around us, not out of the thoughts we form, the symbols we contemplate or the rituals we perform.
This month, we engage in the practice of noticing the very small and finding the energy in this noticing. The play of sunlight on a spoon on the breakfast table reveals an astonishing purity of light. The busy movement of an ant or the buzzing about of a fly proves to contain a whole universe of meaning as these ancient creatures go about the business that they have been carrying out for hundreds of millions of years. The sound of a footfall at the door brings forth the whole energy of the person who is there, and with them all people who have ever been, steps taken and untaken, onward into the great unknown.
Find the very small in your life, and give it all the attention you can, keeping back only that which is necessary to maintain bodily sensation.

The Meditation Group is for Unknowncountry participants who have an interest in meditation designed to expand awareness and evolve contact. Many of us have direct experience of the effectiveness of meditative states in communication with our visitors.
The Meditation Group meets virtually two to four times a month, and attempts to meditate as far as possible at the same time on the same theme. Group members are NOT informed of themes and times via email, although occasional emails are sent to the group.
To participate, it's necessary to take an active role: make a resolution to visit this page every two weeks. Put a reminder on your calendar, whatever it takes. And meditate with the group as you are able.
You can join the meditation group by leaving your email address here.
