MOR- Meditation Club at UF

Welcome to the UF Meditation Club facebook page.

--- Get involved and get MORe out of life! :) ---


We meet 2 times a week, every week. The meetings are all different in nature. Attendance is neither mandatory nor expected - these meetings are purely for our benefit and well-being as a community.

+ Tuesdays and Wednesdays starting at 7:30, our meetings will be a combination of different meditation techniques and various discussion topics about mindfulness. Meet in Psychology building room 108

+ Also on Wednesdays, there will be a long sit before the meeting starting at 6:30 for anyone interested. This will also be in PSY 108.


----------------------

The purpose of this group is to introduce the concept of mindfulness into our daily lives, and to create a community to strengthen our individual meditation practices. This can reduce individual suffering, increase happiness, develop healthy mindsets for fulfilling lives, and we can share what we learn through group activities, discussions, meditation, and community interaction :)


Mindfulness: Being aware of your thoughts and actions, and understanding how they affect yourself and others. Being and living IN THE MOMENT

Anyone can meditate, and what you gain from your practice will be completely up to you. This club will introduce different meditation techniques, as well as provide a platform for open discussions on issues we face as human beings

Once you start trying to acknowledge your reality objectively, (aka observing things as they are, away from any facade or idealism), you can actually start to delve into your own person, and understand who you are as a human being, through analytic introspection. Suffering comes from maintaining expectations and not having them met. Learning to accept things as they are, and accept yourself as YOU are, without wishing and pretending to be someone else, is the second step. Then, once you have learned to accept and love yourself and all that you are, you can start to care for others properly, including this planet that supports us. That is what this club hopes to help people accomplish, whether you're a student, or member of the Gainesville community. The journey to one's true self can begin here!

No one is going to take care of you, understand you, or love you better than yourself.

Help yourself, help the community, and help the world! We all make a difference
