We are the creators of Open Source Meditation, a non-profit, open exploration of all meditation techniques, styles and traditions without any of the obligations or hidden agendas.
Open Source Meditation is open, rational and logical. It says real meditation is not exclusive to one religion or one meditation technique or science or even one sport or one field of art or creative expression. Meditation is free and open to all just as open source software is free and open.
Meditation put simply, is the new common sense. It should not be encumbered by the fundamentalism of one group, religion or even science. Secularists and atheists can meditate just as effectively as meditators that are religious, whether that be Mindfulness meditation, or Buddhist meditation, transcendental meditation, Christian meditation, Zen meditation, chakra meditation or Islamic styles of meditation.
Nearly all popular meditation groups are tied to a specific style or religion. Some, for example, advocate just one meditation technique, mantra meditation, and to be financially committed to their group.
Most religious meditation groups similarly focus on their religion and usually one meditation technique, for example, mindfulness meditation. Open Source Meditation is no different to Open Source software, multiple contributors develop and evolve the functionality for the benefit of all. more
There is nothing so incongruous to humanity as war. All combatants are scarred deeply for ever and ever. No one ever truly wins in battle.
Many of us feel anxious, sad and even depressed, it cycles endlessly around and around in our thoughts and feelings.
Of the many wars and resistance movements across the globe, the war in Ukraine is particularly gruesome, unfair and bloody. It also is receiving the most media exposure and having the largest effect emotionally and mentally.
This is an amazing time where many of our collective paradigms are going to be changed forever.
We feel like many of the questions being asked of us are answered by meditation.
We would like to help by offering lots of FREE virtual weekly Group Meditations that you can join either on your mobile device or on your laptop or computer and for the first time you'll be able to ask questions and meditate live with our friends all over the globe.
We're only new to this so be gentle, together we can empower and help each other.
