Meditation is a part of my daily schedule and has been for many years. This is such an easy challenge, because of that.
One thing that is very special about the Calais community is that we have a Sunday Night Meditation Group that is hosted in different homes each week. Each of us goes when we can. Sometimes no one shows up, other times 20+ people come, you never know.
While sitting meditating with a group of people for an hour may not seem like a bonding experience, you'd be amazed at how wonderful it is. Over time we get to know each other and are introduced to people we might necessarially know.
I have at times hosted a pot luck dinner following meditation. Everyone is welcome and its a lovely way to end the weekend and prepare for a new work week.
I hosted meditation this past Sunday. Everyone there just happened to be a Vermontivate team member - attached is the photo.
