The Swarthmore Sitting Group

The Swarthmore Sitting Group is a secular meditation group open to all students and faculty. The group practices mindfulness/awareness meditation, the practice of being present in the moment. In this practice one discovers and makes friends with oneself, and trains the mind to work with oneself, rather than against.

The group formed out of the natural need for a sangha, a community of meditation practitioners, to promote a sense of regularity for and open discussion about the practice. Meetings include an introduction to the practice of meditation, a short sit, and a discussion/question session. A senior practitioner from the Shambhala traditions conducts several workshops each semester to delve more deeply the practice.
