On the 2nd Monday of each month at 8:00pm Central, the Spiritual Naturalist Society hosts an online video chat session to offer instruction in various forms of secular meditation. In these sessions, participants can participate in a meditation, ask questions, share their experiences or challenges, and discuss understanding of the form, nature, and function of meditation.
You can choose whether to show in video or just listen/talk, and can even join by phone (please use headphones if you have them, to avoid feedback thanks).
To be a part of this group, you should first make sure you have signed up as a member of SNS. Then you will get an invite to join the SNS Members Email List. That is where you will receive reminders and the invite link to join the session. It’s also where you will be able to converse with other members in the group.
Please note that because of Monday holidays or other issues, the meditation may sometimes be pushed out to the third Monday. Early in the month, an email will be sent out listing the date and containing a link to our video chat.
Our discussions are always in a very tolerant, compassionate, open, and listening kind of sharing – not debates. We practice Mindful Discourse in this group, as described here:
