"The practice of meditation is an act of kindness, for others as well as for yourself." |
--Thanissaro Bhikku, in With Each and Every Breath
Building on a tradition started by a small group of friends in California (USA), we invite you to come and share silence with us at the Awakin Circle, Hyderabad.
Every two weeks, we come together to sit in silence for an hour, share some personal insights for the second hour, and some tea afterwards. Our circle is not a religious or commercial venture. It is the creation of a time and space where we can step out of our hurly-burly lives and gain insight about ourselves. No agenda -- just a belief in inner change. :)
To be notified of the next circle, simply sign-up in the right column and you'll be sent an email with more information.
We meet on the Gachibowli main road. It is easily accessible from Banjara Hills, Mehdipatnam and High-tech city.
The rough format of the evening is as follows:
||An hour of collective silence; its unguided, without any instructions or music. For first-timers, this primer on meditation may be helpful.
||A short reading (sent out earlier via email), followed by a circle of personal stories and reflections from everyday life.
||Some chai, hugs, and informal conversation.
There is no charge and no one is expected to bring anything. People organically "pay-it-forward" to the world in their own ways.
