About Spirited Meditation Circle

Spring Session - weekdays, April 4, 2022 - June 21, 2022
7:30am - 8:00am (CT)
Zoom room opens at 7:25am with music

 

Are you looking for more peace and centeredness in your life? To approach each day with more grounding and energy to support your mental health and energetic wellness? Do you find inspiration in the collective energy of community joining together in service of the heart?

I invite you into this community meditation via Zoom to enhance a sense of connectedness, decrease feelings of loneliness and isolation anchored in by the pandemic, and open a supportive energetic space to focus in on developing or revitalizing your meditation practice. We will meet together weekdays; weekends will be an opportunity on your own to focus on your own practice.

During this turn of the Celtic wheel, between April 4 and June 21, we are invited into the space of considering the seeds we’re planting for the harvest to come, a sort of reverse engineering by considering what we’re looking to harvest in fall and tending to the seeds that we plant now to give us the greatest opportunity to bring into being what we want to enjoy then. When we work with the cycles in this way, we do so with openness to possibility – what is possible during this turn of the wheel to feed us, to nourish us heart and soul as we move through spring? What choices will we make that support our vision for present and future?

We tend to this inner process by gathering in circle and being willing to notice, to practice, to create space for stillness, to get to know ourselves, to take responsibility for how we are showing up for ourselves, and how we are showing up in the world.

What the world needs now is more of us taking deep, tender loving care of ourselves every day, and bringing that transformational healing energy of wellness and love into the world. Joining together in meditation is a way to create and share the energy of community that becomes an offering to the Earth and all of her inhabitants.

 

Format

We meet for 30 minutes each weekday at 7:30am (CT) by Zoom. The space opens at 7:25am with music to allow time to fully arrive. I bring us together with a reading or reflection to center our practice, a short guided invitation into our sit, where we will be in silence together for 10-20 minutes. Each session concludes with a quote, an inquiry for self-reflection, or a short reading to carry with you into your day.

 

This session there are two ways to participate:

Live gatherings, by donation
Our live gatherings continue to be offered freely from my heart to yours, with gratitude donations gratefully received at any time during the session via Venmo (@Christy-Marek-1) or PayPal (@tendinglife). If you don’t use electronic payments and still would like to donate, let me know and we can make other arrangements.

Subscribe for access to the daily recordings, $111 for the session
I’ve heard from many of you that the timing of the live sessions just doesn’t work in the flow of your day. Now, you can subscribe for access to the Spring Session recordings. This way, you can tune in when it is most convenient for you and have continued access to relisten as you like. Choose this option either independently from attending live gatherings, or in addition.

Subscribe by making payment of $111 via Venmo (@Christy-Marek-1) or PayPal (@tendinglife) at any time during the session. If you don’t use electronic payments and still would like to subscribe, let me know and we can make other arrangements.

Upon payment, you will receive an email granting access to the Google Drive folder where the audio recordings are housed. After each morning’s circle, the audio file for that day is uploaded to the drive (on rare occasions, this will occur later in the day). When our spring session is complete, you will have continued access to this folder. In respect of this arrangement, I ask that you do not share this link with anyone who hasn’t paid for access.

 

However you desire to participate, simply fill out the form at the top of this page letting me know and I'll send along the Zoom link.

 

What else you need to know...

 

Come as you are

We meet with cameras off, and interaction is not required, so come as you are – sweats and bedhead are welcome. Have a blanket to wrap up in, if you desire, and whatever else you need to be comfortable as you ease into your day.

Bring a mug of something warm and yummy, and perhaps consider creating a ritual around preparing for our session by getting your beverage ready and bringing it to nourish you with its warmth and scent and taste as we practice. Maybe you’ll even light a candle before logging in, setting an intention for our time together as part of your ritual for joining. Make this a special, sacred time that is yours.

You may not be able to join us every day – come as often as you like. Rest in the knowing that we are coming together at the same time each weekday and are holding the space for you to be with us in person or in spirit.

Be uplifted by seeing who is with us, and energetically, the space we create and hold together in community will offer an added boost of goodness to each of our individual meditation experiences.

 

Who is this for?

This circle is open to anyone who wants to experience the power and support of community meditation in order to build a practice or enhance their existing one; those who desire a gentle, loving reminder that the power of peace and stillness is yours always; those looking for a supported energetic space in their day for self-care and nurturing to infuse their life with more goodness and light.

No previous background with meditation is required to join us – just a willingness to explore your own experience. Be free to take only what resonates for you and leave the rest.

Fine Print: By joining this community, you understand that the meditation guidance offered is not a replacement for therapy or professional mental health support. If you have questions about whether this is for you, please feel free to contact me.

 

Intention

My intention in creating this community space is to invite more love, ease, and connection (both within ourselves and with each other) into the world. Through our practice together, I envision us coming into deeper relationship with the grief and heaviness we all carry during these times of uncertainty by engaging what is, being present where we are, and finding peace in the moment. In the process, we are cultivating spaciousness and a greater capacity for joy in our lives, and by extension, the world.
