Benefits of meditating in a group: it helps maintain commitment from participants and creates an encouraging community.
THE AWAKENING OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Humanity is in the midst of a collective awakening or “flowering” of consciousness. It is up to each one of us to start with ourselves, embrace this shift, and allow the unfolding of something beyond the mind.
“The arising of what I call Presence is how the dysfunction of the human mind is transcended,” explains Eckhart. “When consciousness ‘flowers,’ then the human mind is no longer something that creates unnecessary suffering—it becomes something helpful, useful, and potentially capable of achieving miraculous things.”
Practicing Presence may be the kindest action we can take for our own growth and that of humanity—because we are all connected, as we change individually we assist in making shifts in the collective.
