About this trip

We will be reading Will Johnson's

         The Posture of Meditation


"In this essential guidebook, Will Johnson shows how meditation, too  often misunderstood as a mental practice, can be immeasurably enriched  through an embodied approach. The Posture of Meditation features a  range of simple practices based on the principles of alignment,  relaxation, and resilience. This classic book—now with a new section detailing the transformative power of the path of somatic meditation—has  helped thousands of people to begin their meditation practice, to  refine it, and to experience depths they never thought possible."


***SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: The author, Will Johnson, will be joining us and leading a meditation/Q&A on the June 27th call***


Two Virtual Meetings:

June 13 & June 27

4pm - 6pm EST.

Each time I partake in a Wild Within offering I am blow away by the people showing up. The facilitators, Kelly and Alasdair, have a unique approach to gathering that creates a safe, supportive space for everyone to share their true thoughts, feelings, views etc. I always feel I can show up authentically and that has been so empowering. I most recently attended the book club for Brene Brown's Braving the Wilderness. I really loved the book and attending the book club gave me such a deeper understanding of the material. I did not know most of the participants before hand and I was truly amazed and appreciative of their insights! Highly recommend!!

Great discussion and application to daily living. As moderators, Kelly and Alasdair do a great job of monitoring the discussions and drawing all participants into the conversation, connecting the discussions back to the tenets of the book. Participants were free to ask questions of the group and were encouraged to take the discussions in a direction that further led to understanding, created deeper meaning, or served the curiosity of the readers. I have found these discussions honor each participant in an inclusive environment, and create a great community of readers sharing a common experience. Highly recommended.

Excellent facilitators of the discussion. Kelly and Alasdair skillfully monitored the discussions and made adjustments to include every participant. They asked open ended questions specific to the general group, as well as drawing out individuals. The discussion took a variety of paths that all had a common thread back to the readings for deeper meaning and understanding. Additionally, the facilitators sought individual reflections based on knowing the group’s prior experiences and backgrounds. Rapport was established quickly in an accepting environment that honored each participant. I would sign up again for another book discussion with this group just to be in a community of learners that seek to understand. This was a stellar experience.
