At the top of the page are regular, live meditation groups where you can join with others weekly or more to be supported in your meditation practice.
Lower down the page you can access some teaching on meditation that includes a meditation period. Although there is now no 'live' group with these links, accessing the recordings can be a good way to refresh and develop or deepen your meditation practice
Regular, 'live' online meditation groups
People often ask if it is better to meditate alone or in a group. In fact, they are like the two sides of a coin. Meditation is solitary in the sense that I can’t meditate for you and you can’t meditate for me. But people can and want to meditate with others. Meditation groups can be a way into the deeper experience and meaning of meditation by connecting personal experience to community. In a group each person both gives and receives encouragement. ‘It is giving that we receive’. During Covid, many meditation groups formed online and are continuing, as people have appreciated the opportunity to meditate with others across the world.
Seeds of Silence hosts two on line meditations spaces for silence-based prayer.
Every Monday: Lunchtime Silence Space, 1-1.40pm.
Every first and third Monday of the month: Evening Silence Space, 6-6.40pm.
We hear a short reflection from a contemporary version of the Psalms, then spend 25 minutes in shared silence before a closing reading. Those who gather have a variety of practices of silence: we do not come from just one tradition.
