The Practice of Meditation is for Everyone
Meditation is about being in the moment. It is about putting down your opinions, thoughts, and worries, and instead, just existing mindfully. There are no expectations and no requirements. We ask that you just try.
But why practice meditation with other people?
When one comes to a place with others who all are focusing on accomplishing the same goal, it becomes easier and much more enjoyable to accomplish that goal. And, it can teach everyone present how to utilize the practice in daily life.
