Image 19 Meditation is a personal experience.
The experience itself cannot be taught; it happens over time, sometimes a very, very long time.
Yet, there is a variety of techniques that make meditation easier to realize: focusing on the breath, scannning the body for physical sensations, using mantra, or observing your thoughts and attempting to neither attach nor avert from them.
From our perspective, all of these techniques are valid and can be explored to see what works for you and your unique personality.

Practitioners of various meditation techniques are invited to join together for a a quiet, peaceful, and meditative start of your Woodstock Fruit Festival day.

On most days there will be a guided meditation offering - either live or recorded - to help those who don't have an established technique.

Group meditation is effective when each person contributes to an atmosphere of peaceful stillness. The following guidelines list some positive actions you can take to help create a meditative environment for everyone.

• Please arrive by 7:20am to allow sufficient time to settle into a comfortable position on a cushion or a chair.
• Meditation session will start promptly at 7:30am and finish at 8:30am. Please do not enter or leave the meditation hall during the Meditation Session from 7:30am to 8:30am.
• During meditation do your best to remain quiet and still and minimize any noise or movements that can distract others.
• If you choose to bring your cell phone or other electronic device, please make sure that it's in silent mode.

Please bring a cushion, a blanket, or a camp chair to sit on, and wear loose, soft, comfortable clothing.
