Setting up a meditation group?
As a result of listening to your interview cd, I am putting together a group of about nine people based on your wonderful work! I’ve purchased and am awaiting your “Seeds of Enlightenment.” Could you give me any advice/ideas on how to format this group?
What a wonderful name!
Thank you for your patience and my sincere apologies for not being able to reply sooner. I took a longer break this winter holiday and am only just now getting back to the many enquiries that came through during that period.
In the accompanying booklet to Seeds of Enlightenment I suggested that participants spend at least a week on each topic, meditating at least 2-3 times during that week. This is to allow time for integration which will increase one’s understanding. Depending on how long the group will run for, you can revise the material repeatedly. Each time you revisit a topic, your understanding will have deepened due to the other meditations. Whether you meet in person or not, you can come together once a week or month to discuss your practice and meditate together. The most important aspect to remember is that there’s nothing to achieve. Just use the meditations to enjoy your being in all it’s beauty. Let me know how you go from time to time.
With love, Jeddah
