A joyful, collective unfolding guided by the common values of harmony, Witnessing, and celebrating the beauty and grace of Existence.
A PARADISE ON EARTH
The ecological, spiritual community of Club Meditation is an opportunity to come into harmony with self, others, and the natural world. It is an invitation to shed all that is unnecessary while becoming more receptive to that which Is. It is an opportunity to be in a conscious community with a suite of daily meditations and wellness activities.
The Club does not encourage any belief system or ideologies. Instead, it creates a safe space so that each individual can experience supportive inner journeys, live their daily lives in peace and joy, and
partake in genuine friendships.
The Club Meditation Experience is all about supporting the human potential of participants. It is a place for conscious movement and silent sitting. It is a place to playfully engage with opening up to life.
Experience movement from cathartic shaking and wild dancing to the stillness of letting go into the shivasana corpse yoga pose. Experience the freeing of your energy, opening of your heart, and connecting to your higher self.
ALL MEDITATORS WELCOME
Whether you are new to the world of meditation, spirituality, and human potential, or are a seasoned practitioner of a wisdom tradition or modality, Club Meditation embraces diversity in methods. As long as you hold your ideas loosely and don't have anything to impose on others, you should find comfort in the Club.
Club Meditation has no doctrine to follow, no dogmas, no beliefs. The Club simply offers an invitation to let go of the unnecessary and allow yourself to naturally come into harmony with Existence. It offers a process of letting go and opening up.
JOYFUL, TROPICAL LIVING
Club Meditation is inspired by the ecological architecture of the tropics mixed with sacred pyramids and modern, minimalist spaces.
It is being designed to offer an interplay between indoor and outdoor spaces.
Sarasota was chosen as its home because it offers:
A tropical climate with the capacity to grow an abundance of fruits and vegetables year-round.
The climate allows for growing avocado, mango, coconut, banana, citrus, lychee, sapote, guava, papaya, pineapple, star fruit, and much more.
Elevation of about 23', insulating the land from most of the impacts of a rising sea level.
Outdoor living, with average highs of 71 in the coldest month and 90 in the hottest. 11-14 hours of sunlight per day.
Within 10 minutes of the Club is a renowned hospital, holistic practitioners, and plenty of restaurants and shopping. 20 minutes away is SRQ airport that has direct flights to 47 destinations.
A friendly, laid-back culture where sandals are the norm even at fine restaurants.
