Welcome Neighbors & Friends!
I'm calling this the "Westminster Meditation Group." This group is open to all experience levels. I moved from Boulder and noticed there are not many meditation groups out in this area. I'd like to offer this group free of charge as a service to my new community. Meditation has been a great benefit to my life & I' d love for others to have that benefit as well. It can be a nice way to develop community & make friends. Plus, this helps me as I get to meet folks in my new community, learn facilitation skills and much more. So thank you for your interest!
This will be held in my home - a condo (which feels very spacious as it has vaulted ceilings, is on 3rd floor with mountain & tree top views, wonderful light, & simply decorated). I affectionately named my condo "Shannon's Zendominium." :-) I feel it is very conducive for a group like this. I very much enjoy having folks in my home.
**IMPORTANT: I ask that you please register for each week you plan to attend. And if you end up needing to CANCEL to please email me at email@example.com in case I have folks on a wait list. I have room for about 20 folks. ** This is much appreciated!
*Please bring a cushion(s) or pillow(s) or blanket(s) to sit on. I do have about 4 chairs for those that need/prefer a chair. (You might also want a blanket or shawl for further comfort.) If the group takes hold I plan to solicit donations from outside sources for actual meditation cushions. :)
*I do have a cat. Please take precaution if you have allergies
*The driveway is the first one just after the Westminster Kidney Center. Please park on the street (Decatur) as our lot is reserved for tenants only. 8440 is the Building #.
I am very much looking forward to spending this time with you & exploring!
Our first meeting on January 11th will be mostly informational. You will have a chance to ask questions. Please do come by and check it out!
*And don't forget to please register! (It only takes 30 seconds)
In the event I need to cancel a meeting, an email will be sent out. By registering, I will be able to contact you.
