If you are new to meditation then joining meditation groups Gold Coast is a great way to start. Sometimes you will find that there may not be a meditation group nearby so you can certainly start your own. When you do start your own meditation group there are a few things you need to consider.
First of all, you need to work out how many people you want to have in your meditation group. If you are new to meditation then it is recommended that you only have 3 or 4 people in your meditation group including yourself. If you have been meditating for some time then you may consider having anywhere up to 10 people, however, when you have that many people in a room make sure that your meditation room is an appropriate size.
Aspects to consider for a meditation group:
If you are going to host the meditation group at your home make sure that you find a suitable room with no distractions and very low noise. If you live in a suburb which is extremely noisy or next to a train station then your guest meditators may find it very difficult to get to the first stage in the meditation process so in this case, you may consider hosting your meditation group at a local hall or community centre.
The next aspect you need to consider when setting up your meditation group is whether the group will be run as a guided meditation group or simply a group of people meditating together. It is recommended that if you are starting out that you do run a guided meditation group and invite someone from one of your local meditation centres to guide each session.
Ask them if they will run the session for free in return for them being able to offer their meditation tools at your meditation group. Some meditation practitioners will charge a fee regardless of your offer, simply because that is how they make a living which is fair enough.
When you are setting up your meditation groups Gold Coast, you will need to develop a way to indicate to people how you will bring them out of their meditated state. In many cases, the music you are using if it is designed for meditation will do this for you but there is nothing worse than to be brought out of a nice peaceful tranquil state by the blast of a whistle
