Until the end of the year, you can start your Tuesday morning with meditation. Let's create a moment of mindfulness, to find inner peace together. You can join online or on the spot. Every time will be different. We will breath, meditate, be inspired by a poem or just listen to the silence.
These weekly morning meditations are inspired by our men's Sangha group, but will be mixed, so everybody is welcome. There is space for co-creation. So if you're in the mood to guide us, feel free to do so. Before the meditation, we will quickly check in with each other, to hear how we feel this morning.

Examples of possible meditations:
Connecting to your breath can damp down stress and open a door to a more healthy and mindful lifestyle. One of the easiest ways to reduce stress is to simply focus your attention on your breath. You'll notice an immediate sense of relaxation that could help protect your health over time. There are many forms of breathing meditation where you conciously change the rhythm, speed or depth of your breath. These forms of breath meditation can be a gateway to practicing "mindfulness," in which you learn to accept and appreciate what comes in life.
The nature of your mind is to produce thought. Like the ocean, it has its own rhythm and flow. It should be respected, not feared or fought against. Once you stop fighting against your thoughts and allow it to flow naturally, you can begin to retreat into the depths of your inner self beyond the chaos and distractions.
Loving-kindness meditation is an expression of what you wish most deeply for yourself, not just for today, but in an enduring way. The meditation is simple phrases that are big enough and general enough that you can wish them for all beings everywhere. Classical phrases are things like, “May I live in safety. May I be happy. May I be healthy. May I live with ease.” You can also choose phrases that resonate for you, it does not have to be these specific phrases.
