Giving Up – CEC Meditation

The Consciousness Explorers Club is now online! So if you’re from out of town and have always been curious about what the CEC gets up to every Monday night, now’s your chance to find out.

The sit is free, or you can donate something – information about that below. Our format is short chat, followed by a 35-minute guided sit, then some disorganized group sharing. About one hour total.

Our theme for Monday, December 14th:

In this meditation, we are going to allow ourselves to be utterly defeated. It will be a race to the bottom, as each of us attempts to out-defeat the other. To say nothing of how each sensation will defeat us (by continuing to be ungraspable), each expectation will defeat us (by continuing to be unfulfillable), and each shining Enlightenment will defeat us – whoosh! – as it passes us by on the way to some sanguine dolphin or industrious garden shrew. How sincere, our defeat! How total, our destruction! “Tell it to no one but the wise / For most will mock it right away / The truly living do I prize / Those who long in flame to die.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, “Holy Longing” (translated by Shinzen Young).

Go HERE to learn about the other CEC sits happening this month, every Monday night.

In terms of cost, here is the CEC:

“We encourage everyone near and far to participate. If you are able to donate a little something in return, we would greatly appreciate it. It’s a tough time financially right now, as we’re losing the income generated from our live offerings and fundraising events.  Every little bit helps us keep going with our non-for-profit mission to make meditation and personal growth practices awesome and accessible to all.

We gratefully accept donations via e-transfer (within Canada) or Paypal, sent to consciousnessexplorersclub@gmail.com. You can also sign up to be a monthly supporter via our Patreon page, and receive added perks and benefits in return.”
