Starting a Meditation Group to Build an Inclusive, Supportive, and Compassionate Community

I’ve had a strong meditation practice for 12 years and have helped a lot of people discover how helpful meditation can be for one’s personal growth. I would like to see if we can go one step further to build a community of meditators who support one another’s personal growth while spreading seeds of peace and compassion to the people in their lives. When practiced correctly, meditation will help people reduce the anger, fear, and greed in their lives, and the more we understand and practice meditation, the more loving our communities will become. At least that’s my belief.

With a two-year-old son and a daughter coming soon, my wife and I want to grow the community that understands how to reduce the agitation in our minds. Instead of dividing our society through conflicts, we want to support society coming together to find solutions to the complex challenges we face. Meditation can’t solve the challenges for us, but it can help us to align our efforts.

We want to start a weekly virtual meditation group, possibly on Mondays from 7:30 to 8:30pm, to meditate together, get to know one another, and learn from everyone’s life experiences. I don’t have a vision for where this will lead, but if we prioritize meditation and relationships, I’m confident it will lead to something inspiring. The three groups I want to initially bring together are the experienced meditators in my life, students who have learned about meditation in my physics classes over the last 7 years, and the new crop of students I will start with in September. Anyone else who is interested in participating is welcome to join.
