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 24 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.)The 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!
If you are interested but can’t make the Soulfulness Meditation Group Gatherings, we can 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).
