Silent meditation has always played a central role on the spiritual path. By allowing us to step directly beyond the mind and ego, authentic meditation provides us with both a direct experience of the goal and context of spiritual life and an opportunity to ground our being in that ultimate reality.
In its deepest form, meditation is about disengaging entirely from the world of time, action, and becoming, and resting freely and effortlessly in â€śnon-dual awarenessâ€ť or what has often been called â€śthe natural state.â€ť
Yet, although meditation is about discovering this â€śnatural state,â€ť in practice it is often anything but natural. Left to our own efforts, many of us find meditation to be either a constant struggle or merely a moderately relaxing practice with no clear connection to the lives we are living every day.
In response to the growing need for deep meditation instruction and support, weâ€™re pleased to announce that Integral Enlightenment Founder Craig Hamilton has offered to host a free monthly meditation gathering online.
One Sunday morning each month, weâ€™ll gather from around the world online and by phone to participate in this collective journey in consciousness.
Each 90-minute event will begin with a brief talk about meditation, followed by a 45-minute guided meditation and a 30-minute Q&A session during which you can ask your questions about meditation and receive direct guidance from Craig.
Weâ€™ve been offering guided online group meditation as part of our Integral Enlightenment courses for the past two years, and the impact on participants has been nothing short of life-changing. Many find that, in this supportive â€ścollective field,â€ť they are able to gain access to a depth of meditation that has previously eluded themâ€”often despite years or even decades of meditation practice.
So, weâ€™re delighted to now be able to share this experience free of charge with anyone who wishes to tune in.
