The meditation group at UUBN is celebrating its 10 year anniversary this month in November. No one recalls the exact date that UU minister Marino, who identified as a UU and a Buddhist, gathered us in the Fell room to introduce us to sitting and walking meditation, but we are pretty sure it was in November, 2009. I recall her telling us that during the hectic holiday season, we would all benefit from some peace and quiet. And she was right! The first instruction she gave was simply to turn off the radio in the car and just focus on driving. Good advice! We meditated very briefly—maybe 5 minutes—that first day and it seemed like a really long time. Some days it still does. But here we are, ten years later.
