We’d love you to come and join our meditation group. We sit together for meditation on Monday evenings from 7:30pm to 8:15pm.
Cost: free – but a gold coin donation helps us cover the room hire.
Location: Kyabram Community and Learning Centre, 21-25 Lake Road Kyabram.
Enter via the rear ‘after hours’ entry. We can’t leave the door open and want to avoid people ringing the doorbell once we’ve started the meditation – so please arrive by 7:25pm.
How it works
This is not a meditation class. We’re simply sitting together as a group to support each other’s meditation practice.
If you’re new to meditation, have a look at the basic instructions page. There’s not much you need to know to get started—at its core, meditation is quite simple. The real learning comes as you start working with your mind and building your own practice.
We usually begin with a guided meditation, and then sit in silence for 10-15 minutes to develop our mindfulness skills.
We post an event notification on Facebook each week, so if you like and follow our page you’ll know when we’re meeting.
7:30pm – Welcome
7:35pm – Guided meditation
7:55pm – Silent meditation
8:15pm – Finish
What to bring
If you plan to sit on the floor, bring your own meditation mat and cushion.
There are chairs at the venue, so you don’t have to sit on the floor. You may want to bring a cushion to support your back so you can sit up straight.
We also recommend you bring a shawl or wrap to keep warm in the cooler months, and wear socks because you’ll remove your shoes before you come into the meditation room.
For lying down meditations
Some evenings we will do a lying down meditation (this is optional – you can sit if you prefer). We’ll let you know via Facebook, and then you’ll need to bring a:
- blanket (and yoga mat to lie on if you wish. The floor is carpeted though).
Let us know if you’re coming
- Contact us if you’re coming for the first time. We can tell you what to expect and answer any questions you may have about the group or the practices we do.
- Accept our event invitation on Facebook so we’ve got a rough idea of numbers.
Dey Alexander facilitates the group. She’s been meditating for over 15 years. Having learned meditation in a Hindu tradition, she is now interested in mindfulness.
You don’t have to be from any faith tradition to attend.
