M3 is a monthly meeting of men for mindful movement, meditation and discussion. It is for both those new to meditation and long-time practitioners. Our goal is to create a space for men to learn the power of silent meditation, to deepen their meditation practice, and to interact with other like-minded men.
This is a meeting for men who desire to live awake, enriched, and free lives. An important goal of this gathering is be challenged and corrected by like-minded men, “as iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” The Proverb is the metaphor for these gatherings. It is an opportunity for men to sharpen each other in their spiritual walk so we can live as fully awake beings.
David Deida talks about this concept of "sharpening" when he wrote in The Way of the Superior Man, “The cure for lack of purpose is to be challenged to live at your edge, since you have lost the capacity to live there by yourself….get together with your men friends to serve one another. Cut through the bullshit and talk with each other straight.”
These monthly sessions will do just that.
If you have never meditated, this is a place to start. If you are a seasoned practitioner, bring your wisdom and share with all of us.
For future meetings we are planning to have conference call and video streaming facilities so that those outside the DC metro area can listen and interact.
