A Cooperative Meditation Group
Is advertising for friends to join in a equality based meditation practice.
Equality for the compassion and openness to contribute with and for each other, An openness that is only possible without hierarchy.
There is a meeting to begin where experience and practice for that meditation are discussed and agreed to by method of reaching a consensus.
Then the meditation followed by a chat about what happened during the meditation if people want to talk about it and a meeting about any business relevant to the group.
7:30pm on Thursdays at the Read and Black Umbrella, Clifton St, Adamsdown, Cardiff. It is on the corner of Clifton Street and Pearl Street and the nearest bus stop is Adamsdown, Tin Street (NE-bound)

There are a lot of hierarchical movements which claim an authority on which they base their meditation classes they dictate meditation exercises to people or teach a particular forms of secular meditation practices. This group experience is deliberately designed to avoid the characteristics that arise from those classes.
There will be a discussion to begin to decide what people what to do. This is done deliberately attempting to invoke openness and an egalitarian characteristic to the group. If a decision was made before hand and then that decision was cared out the potential to include everyone in the proses would be denied and the benefit of including everyone in that proses are far grater than the effort that it takes to include everybody in that proses.
No personal attacks only observations of potential behaviours that may be helpful or unhelpful kind or unkind.
To maintain equality and openness accrediting a quote to anyone not in the room is seen as unhelpful because accrediting authority to others not present diminishes the relations with the people immediately in your company. Quoting is permitted i.e "be kind" which is different to "The Dali Lama says be kind" for example. Say it as yourself.
Using an other as a superior or better or using a hypothetical person who is representing an end point or perfect is not helpful to sharing and openness because it diminishes the egalitarian relationship that would be advantageous to foster between those directly in front of you.
