Testimonial for Meditation Groundwork
“I am so grateful to have found Dharma Hub’s online sits. I was surprised at how quickly the gatherings started to feel like a community. Being able to count on the familiar and welcoming faces of Andy and Maryline several times a week has helped me be more consistent and has deepened my mindfulness practice.”Ari, Subscriber since Nov 2020
About the Orientations
Even if you have experience already, we’d like to meet you and make sure we’re on the same page before inviting you to join our regular community sits. Because these online sessions are live sacred spaces, it is important to set up this shared space with intentionality for the benefit of all.
At the orientation session we’ll:
- Offer two guided meditations
- Suggest 3 ways to set up your practice for success
- Offer ways to sit and support your posture
- Explain how the program works
After attending an orientation, you’ll have the chance to register for streamed group sits each month.
The orientations sessions are open to all.
Regular Meditation Sessions Each Month
After you’ve been through the orientation, you can sign up at any time to join our regular sessions. Join when you can to support your practice, we don’t expect you to join every time.
This will be done by monthly subscription, so you may renew your personal commitment and intention each month.
Who is Meditation Groundwork for?
- wishes to start a meditation practice and doesn’t know where to start
- values meditation and wants to make it happen in his/her life
- has meditated, and needs support in order to make it part of a regular healthy lifestyle.
Part of you knows that dedicating time to stop and breathe mindfully is important. It’s hard to make it happen alone! We know that from experience! Whatever good intentions, the reality is that all is set up for you to be drawn back into habits and busyness. It takes a good amount of effort to disroot this habit of thinking about everything, everywhere, all the time! It is just what we know. What we are used to.
You may have recognized that this approach to life is not fulfilling. That somewhat, whatever you do, you always fall back into some sort of anxiety, dissatisfaction or pain.
Ultimately, you know that true peace is found inwards. All you need is dedicated time and effort to train yourself into being present with this moment, just as it is, without needing to do much about it.
This group practice will help you develop the muscle of concentrating the mind on something truly wonderful and anchoring, your very own breath.
These sessions are meant to provide the structure needed in order to make progress on your personal growth journey.
-Weekly structured group sits
-Increased knowledge of the practice of breathing meditation
-Guidance from practitioners with a combined 25+ years of meditation experience
-Practice with a community of dedicated practitioners
-Access to supplementary classes and a wider community to go deeper
Your Guides for Meditation Groundwork
“I tried many years to meditate by myself without gaining much momentum and it’s really when I started to practice with others that I gave myself the gift of healthy habits.”
“Finding groups to connect with and making small commitments, and then larger ones, has ensured my practice stuck through the years. This is one reason I love offering this program, to pay forward all the teachings, support, and inspiration I’ve received over the years. Plus, committing to offering this program week in and week out supports my own practice.”
If you join our mailing list you’ll get personal invitations to our ‘pop-up’ meditations and any future orientation sessions for Meditation Groundwork and a monthly newsletter including special events, workshop, and retreats with us and our teachers.
