Wake Up to Your Life | Buddhist Meditation Group of Columbus
"The Wake Up to Your Life" group of Columbus, Ohio is a nonsectarian group of Buddhist practitioners who have found the teachings of Ken McLeod to be especially clear and helpful. Some of our members have attended teachings with Ken McLeod directly and he continues to serve as a distant mentor to the group. We also participate in monthly teleconferences with Janaki Symon, a Buddhist teacher authorized by Ken McLeod.
But we have no “teachers” in the classical sense. Though some of our members have more experience than others, we seek to cultivate a "beginner's mind" approach toward practice, remembering the obstacles that we have faced while striving to move from a life of chaos and confusion to one of greater equanimity and awareness. In addition, the group recognizes the important need for individuals to apply the teachings to their own lives, to experiment with what works and what does not. We thus seek to foster a supportive environment in which individual practitioners can freely and openly share their own inner experience without fear of judgment.
