Meditation circles offer a great opportunity to meditate in a friendly and clean environment, while developing a group meditation practice. They can be found in a variety of locations, including yoga studios, meditation organizations, and even pop-up groups that change locations every week.
The Benefits of Meditation Circles
In addition to helping develop a meditation practice, meditation circles are a way to meet other people interested in the same type of spirituality. Moreover, studies show that brainwaves synchronize when meditation is done in a group.
As a result, meditation can be more powerful and effective when done in a group. This is especially true for newcomers to meditation.
Groups have the potential to increase your own spiritual progress by sustaining your enthusiasm for meditation, and encouraging you to continue your spiritual practice despite challenges in life. They also protect your meditative path from distractions caused by dual forces in the universe, which have the potential to derail your Self-realization.
The benefits of group meditation have been documented by many spiritual masters and are endorsed by the saints themselves. Here are a few key reasons why it is important to join a meditation group:
1. Supportive and Inspiring Members
Meditation in a group can be a great way to support each other. It can help you through difficult feelings, emotions or memories that may arise during your meditation practice.
2. Repetition and Meditation Techniques
Having people to repeat and practice different meditation techniques can make the process more comfortable for newcomers, and it can help you learn the technique faster.
