Are you in the Los Angeles area?
The Sunday Soulfulness Meditation Group is ON!
The Soulfulness4Life vision of expanding the spaces and opportunities for meditation attuned to People of Color is happening!
Here are the Fall 2019 dates and times:
**Sunday October 6th, 10:30am – 11:45am
AND 4:00-5:15pm (NEW!)**
**Sunday October 20th, 9:00am – 10:15am**
**Sunday October 27th, 4:00-5:15pm** (NEW!)
**Sunday November 10th, 12:00noon – 1:15pm**
**Sunday, November 24th, 4:00-5:15pm** (NEW!)
(A couple more dates will be identified for December)
(Looking toward a more regular schedule beginning January 2020 when my schedule opens up and informed by the preferences of those who attend.)
STRUCTURE: The structure for the “Sunday Soulfulness Meditation Group” will be similar to the meditations this summer at Simply Wholesome (with a few modifications and additions).
*A theme for each meeting related to health, well-being, wisdom, spirituality, relationships, etc.
*Some brief teaching on the theme, meditation strategies and processes, and how to enhance the effectiveness of your meditation practice
*Time to sit in meditative “quietude” with each other
*Guided “Soulitations” (structured meditations to facilitate soul contact and soulful experiencing)
*Open time for debriefing, talking together, sharing challenges and resources, etc.
GROUP SIZE AND SPACE RESERVATION: I ask that you please email or text me BEFORE EACH MEETING to let me know you are coming. EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org / TEXT: 424-209-2223. It would be great if you could let me know at least a few hours ahead so that I can plan accordingly. However, you are welcome to just show up if the inspiration hits you in the moment to come! (But still text when you’re on your way please ;-).) If space becomes an issue then I will let you know when you contact me if the group is at capacity. (Please also be so kind as to text if you cannot come at the last minute so that a space can be opened for someone else if needed.)
I’m thinking that the number of people will be similar to the Simply Wholesome meditations this summer (between 8-16 each week) and my meditation studio space will accommodate 20-24 people comfortably.
There is no requirement to attend all meetings, you can come to those that work for you!
SUGGESTED FEE: $20 per meeting is suggested (cash, PayPal: paypal.me/soulfulness, Venmo: @shellyharrellphd, or personal check) to support costs and future programming. (Of course, you can pay less depending on your situation, or more to support the development of Soulfulness4Life activities and initiatives.)
LOCATION: My meditation studio space near the intersection of La Brea and Centinela in northwest Inglewood, CA. I will send you the exact address when you contact me.
PREPARATION / WHAT TO BRING: Dress comfortably and feel free to bring your own cushion, blanket, meditation chair etc.. I do have a few cushions, as well as meditation chairs with back support, as well as plenty of (pretty comfortable!) folding chairs. You can bring your own water bottle but I will also have bottled water available for you there. No outside food is allowed. Most importantly, bring your open-heart and open-mind, your “whole” self, your humanity, your full presence, as well as your personal and collective/communal intentions!
I hope to see you at an upcoming Sunday Soulfulness Meditation and together co-create this special space in OUR community for meditation!
If you can’t make the Sunday Soulfulness Meditation Group, let’s talk about arranging for me come to you and facilitate meditations with a group of your friends or colleagues, a club, team, organization, etc. at a location of your choice (or at other times on Sundays at my meditation space). Also, phone and video-conference meditations for individuals and groups are in the planning stages so that Soulfulness4Life meditations can be available outside of Los Angeles! Visioning also includes special meditations for groups such as “helpers and healers”, millennials, Women of Color, and more!
