Group meditation is a wonderful experience. Although, it cannot replace our daily practice of meditation, it can add a sense of family which is greatly needed in our technological and media dominated world. How often the group meets is up to its members. The size of the group can be from 5 to 30 members. If a group should grow larger than 30, they can simply split into two or more groups.
All this I describe in detail in THE MEDITATION BIBLE. This is only an outline of Group Meditation.
What form of meditation an individual is using should be of no concern to the group, just as any religious affiliation or lack thereof should be accepted. There are many agnostic or atheistic people who are searching for a spiritual direction in life.
Verbal chanting should not be used.
The only common interest that holds the group together is the desire to find one’s spiritual center, inner being, or start a spiritual journey. The group should be non-institutional, or unaffiliated with any institution. The location should be a neutral meeting place or a home. The purpose of the group is to be a supportive family to each other, and not some supper movement driven by a cult of personality.
When you are connected to the “Great I am” in yourself, you will realize that you are automatically connected to the “I am” in everyone and everything else. My greatest joy is the random meeting of those who are connected. And when one percent of the population becomes connected in meditation the world will change all by itself.
Here is an outline of the Meditation agenda:
- The Gathering (30 minutes)
- Transition to the inner room (five minutes)
- A talk or story (10 to 15 minutes)
- Meditation (30 minutes)
I use this format in starting groups in different locations. With five people all the principals of group dynamics kick in. The most basic principal of a meditation group is that everyone has a “Great I am” center.
Even though it is important to avoid any dos and don’ts for the discussion, there are two behavior modifications that I recommend as guidelines.
- Learn to listen to what others are saying.
- Only one person should be angry at a time.
These two behavior modifications will allow you to maintain your spiritual center even during the discussion period.
The conversation period is there so we can share our experiences and strengthen our spiritual centers, our inner being.
Let the Love-light fill you.
Let the ‘Great I am’ guide you.
The ‘Great I am’ is one and the same in each of us and everything. Even though we are all different. Our creator and a trees creator are the same. When your connected, ask the tree.
