Every FRIDAY at 8:00-9:30AM
Come meditate with us at Camas Books! No one wants to pay to sit in silence with a group, and now you don’t have to.. it’s freeeeee! Doors open at 8:00, bring cozy layers, a blanket and maybe a pillow. Never meditated before? Needn’t be discouraged, each week in the first 15(ish) minutes, a person will share a form of meditation they enjoy practicing, for the rest of the time, you’re welcome to do whatever form you wish, have it be in art, qi gong, staring at the wall, spinning in circles, reading a book… what have you.. You are most welcome to leave as you wish, quietly.
"We are sick with fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas. Meditation is therefore the art of suspending verbal and symbolic thinking for a time, somewhat as a courteous audience will stop talking when a concert is about to begin." -Alan Watts
