Alea Meditation is a simple sonic meditation where participants join together to generate a cloud of sound. Alea is simple enough that anyone can join in. You don't need to have any musical background to participate. Alea Meditation uses sound to help participants directly experience interconnectedness, mutuality, non-grasping, to and enter into a naturally relaxing field of calming sensation. This is accomplished through experiencing the Alea meditation. Created by Jim Wilson, based on his experience of Zen shakuhachi music, Alea has proven to be an enjoyable way of meditation for many people. The evening will begin with simple instruction. Then we will all join in the Alea meditation. Following that, we will have time for discussion and comments.
Jim Wilson is a former Buddhist monk and Abbot who studied Zen in Korea, Japan, and the U.S. He is a published poet and is currently a member of Sebastopol's local Quaker Meeting.
