Our Community of Learning Circles

Fords Namchak Learning Circle

Fords, NJ

Are you looking for a way to connect with like-minded individuals and get into a regular meditation practice to relieve stress and be more mindful? Do you have a deep yearning to know more about the real meaning of our daily lives? If you answered yes to either of these two questions, this group is for you.

This is a secular group open to all. For purposes of a structure, we will use fundamental concepts from Tibetan Buddhist teaching, specifically the Namchak lineage to learn and practice meditation. A typical event will consist of shared activities where we learn and practice in a spirit of togetherness. Shared activities typically include a check-in with each member on the past week, a discussion on a book that we have read as a group, and meditation. All members are welcome to contribute ideas for our common good.

If you are interested in joining our Learning Circle, please reach out to info@namchak.org and reference “Fords Learning Circle.”

Meditation Without Borders is a virtual Learning Circle that meets every other Sunday morning at 9am MT for one hour to discuss how our meditation practice is helping us live a more mindful, compassionate, and loving life. We are from different countries and for some of us, English is not our first language.

Mindful Monday Meditation Circle

Virtual

Our circle currently meets every 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month from 7-8pm MST via Zoom video platform. The purpose of this circle is to build and sustain a supportive community of meditators who will practice different forms of meditation and reflect on our practice together in order to live more mindful, peaceful, connected, and compassionate lives. We are based out of Albuquerque, NM, but our members’ locations range from New Zealand and Hawaii to San Francisco and North Carolina! We are looking to host a physical meditation circle in addition to our virtual circle as soon as we gather enough interested meditators in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area, and we would also like to eventually increase our meeting time to twice a month (2nd & 4th Mondays).

If you are interested in joining our Learning Circle, please reach out to info@namchak.org and reference “Mindful Monday Meditation Circle.”
