The Online Meditation Chapel - Supporting Christian Mental Health
The Online Meditation Chapel is an online multi-faith community of contemplatives. If you are called to find the sacred in the stillness, it's there for you. There are meditation groups from every faith tradition to use in their online chapels. They invite meditators from all faith traditions to participate in any of their groups. It's a free site and they do not accept any advertisements.
Meditation Chapel nurtures unity and world peace through the sharing of divine stillness and sacred listening. They support groups of all faith traditions in offering and sharing the contemplative experience through the sacramental use of technology.
Meditation is the practice of quieting your mind. Many meditation communities encourage group meditation, which means that at least some of the times you are meditating you are doing so in a group. Online group meditation simply means that the group you are meditating with is meeting online, rather than physically.
They have more than 150 groups meeting every week, so whenever you are ready to meditate, there is probably a group getting ready to start. Their calendar shows you when all of their groups meet in your local time zone. And since all of their groups meet online, it doesn’t matter where you are. If you have a quiet space and an Internet connection, you can participate. Their desire is to offer you a virtual chapel where you can experience the beauty and community of online meditation groups.
Meditation in general has many well known benefits. New health benefits of meditation are being discovered constantly. Meditation has been shown to help people psychologically both by reducing anxiety and by providing a supportive community. And meditation has been the spiritual cornerstone of every major religious tradition for as long as we have had religions.
Online meditation groups offer all of these benefits in a more convenient format. You can join an online meditation group from the convenience of your own home. And because they have so many online meditation groups meeting throughout the day and night, you will be able to find a welcoming online meditation group that is convenient regardless of your faith tradition, schedule, or time zone.
There is no cost or obligation to participate in their online meditation groups. The only technical requirement is a computer and an internet connection. The more important requirement is a desire to be more centered in the Divine (however you understand that) and a willingness to support and be supported by an online meditation community. You can participate in as many online meditation groups as you like and you can leave at any time.
