Beginners’ Meditation Group – Virtual meeting, Mondays from 7-8:15 p.m. You can join the group at any time, whether beginner or experienced in meditation. We are all learning from each other. We typically practice silent meditation, but may try other forms such as guided meditation or walking meditation.  Our typical meeting includes a short check-in or introduction, a 15-20 minutes silent meditation, then a break for a stretch and conversation about our practice or sharing a brief reading, followed by another period of silent meditation. We welcome people from all backgrounds and spiritual practices. To get the link to the online meeting, please email Marci at marci713@sbcglobal.net
