Our ongoing OnlineLIVE Community Sitting Group Meetings
are the Heart & Soul of what we do at the Centre for Mindful Living.

Members of the IC.CML Community

The Meetings are where we come together, with no pressure on anyone to speak or to perform, no expectations to meet, and no goals to be achieved. There is no obligation to attend any specific session, it is there for you whenever you are ready to join us – for the first time; as a regular attendee; or to come back, if you’ve not been for a while.

Our Community is boundless, a fluctuating practice that welcomes and embraces all.
Open to anyone, it is a community that we are creating together, because we feel that it matters. We feel the value of being part of a group and feel the importance of coming together, sitting with and connecting with each other, sharing space, time, laughter, thoughts, silence, humanity.

The warmth of another’s voice, a voice of acceptance, takes us out of our own heads and can lead us into unknown territories. Our thoughts can go round and round in loops, until they are formulated into words. Once we hear ourselves speak, they change again, and open us to the response, reflection and experience of others. When the concerns of others mirror our own, simply by listening, we are also nourished.

We all have blind-spots and sometimes need extra input to help us see what and where they are and to find our ways through.

In practicing together, a space is created in the shape of belonging and trust – the nature of the group comes from all who attend. We invite you to step into it and be part of it; and in stepping into it, the shape will always reform to include you. There is no clique, no hierarchy – when you join us, we are genuinely delighted to see you and will meet each other face to face.

All of us understand the complexities and conflicting pressures of life, pulling us in all directions. This is a space you can dip into, or submerse yourself in, depending on your capacity. The richness of this group comes from the many veins of experience that feed into it, the people who come back again and again and are a regular presence, and those who drop in when they are able to.

As one of our Friends commented:

“A true connection…
A belonging…
Learning…
A being with…
All this not just from today…
each time.

Thank you for creating and holding this space, this community.”
