You can also look at the specific programs for different geographical areas by clicking on the "Upcoming Events" button in the Main Menu to the left and then going to whatever country you are interested in.

The general programs in different areas are set out in what follows.

Meditation Meetings

People meet regularly for meditation in a variety of places. There are both formal and informal groups. The formal groups are listed here and are run in association with the Network, offering programs that are completely consistent with the mainstream of teaching. Informal groups also get together. These are run by people who have started their own groups, who themselves, or whose members, do not want a formal link with the Network. (Should you be interested in starting a meditation group, you will find some information under Starting a Group in the Meditation Directory that is accessed through the General Directory.)
