We offer the opportunity to come together to sit with stillness in honor and support of those in need, loved ones, our community, our planet, life in general. A box will be available in the lobby to place cards specifying a person or situation to be held in the hearts of those in the circle. Leave a card in the lobby whether or not you can make the circle; come to the circle whether or not you have left a card, come and go as you please. Our time together will be spent in quiet contemplation speaking only to acknowledge the cards, and what they represent. It will be a time spent consciously tuning in and resonating out; connecting as one.

Hridaya Meditation teaches the path of the Spiritual Heart, the point in our being that IS the ineffable Truth. This path is one of surrender, stillness, and equanimity. Practitioners will learn and utilize simple meditative techniques which will unvail that which always is and is almost always shrouded by the mind. Actual meditation is rare and can be difficult, while trying to meditate is much more common. We are often distracted by, or engaged in, our thoughts and emotions or even sometimes distracted by the 'activity' of spiritual practice. Together we will learn to release our 'selves' during meditation and slowly begin to carry that selflessness (or no-self) into our daily lives. The path of Hridaya is not a path of doing or trying, it is a path of surrender and simplicity. 'Who Am I?', the self-enquiry method of Ramana Maharshi is a staple of Hridaya, but we will also consider aspects of many other practices and religions that pertain to the Spiritual Heart. Come prepared to uncover Truth.
