Young Meditators

 

The Portland Young Meditators Group is a meditation, mindfulness and social group for those who identify in some way as “young” – most of our members are in their 20s and 30s, but all are welcome. The idea of focusing on age is not meant to be exclusionary, but rather to promote community, connection and inspiration among an age group that is often in the minority at many m10710880_958084440872117_7752720499192754858_n_e14editation centers.

The Young Meditators Group is a way to connect, share space, presence, ideas and practice with others who are interested in meditation and mindfulness, community and social engagement, regardless of what tradition you may practice in.

We meet weekly, at 7:00pm, at the Portland Shambhala Center, where we practice sitting meditation together, and then engage in Social Meditation, a practice of taking mindfulness off the cushion and into our speech and listening. We also have meetings regularly outside of this- potlucks, hikes, museum outings, etc.

Those who are new to meditation are warmly encouraged to attend.  Meditation instruction is offered at the beginning of the session for those who would like it.

For more information, please contact Corey Adkins, Young Meditators Group Coordinator.
