MAKING A START WITH A MEDITATION GROUP
I participated in the International Day of Peace celebration at Federation Square, Melbourne, where a number of us meditated together with the objective of sending ripples of peace into the world. It was a truly magical experience.
It made me reflect on how I am contributing to spreading peace. Having been a meditator for more than 20 years now, I’ve never been involved in teaching, not because of lack of interest but more due to lack of time. I do not have any formal qualification or certification to be a teacher but I do have the experience from my own journey as a meditator. There are many experiences on the meditators path. There are times of rapid progress and other times which feel quite stagnant. There are times of exhilaration and others when it feels boring! There are periods of prolonged stillness and others when your mind just feels like a runaway train. And there are times of searching and longing and others when it merges into deep acceptance.
Though the journey for me continues as a meditator, it feels like a full cycle of enquiry, searching, longing, initiation, integration and wholeness has been reached. And that space feels ripe enough to share with others. As a result, I look forward to running regular meditation courses in my new office in Richmond in 2016.
