Why Group Meditation?
There’s no shortage of ‘communication’ these days, but how often do we really connect in a true sense with the people around us? When we experience the same silence as the people sitting next to us, we discover a sense of connectedness that is very powerful.
More powerful meditation experience
The ‘ripple’ effect of meditating in groups can make the individual experience more profound and powerful for meditators.
Part of a community
The connections and bonds we make with others while meditating can form the pathways for lasting friendship and unite us around a sense of common purpose.
The power of many
Numerous studies show that a large group of people meditating together can have a measurable effect on the greater population and the world.

Medimates is the brainchild of Matt Ringrose, the founder of Bondi Meditation Centre in Sydney Australia, and was conceived when Matt started running free sunrise group meditations on Bondi Beach. He soon came to understand the benefits people experienced when meditating in a group, as well as the social connections and community that followed.
Matt wants to empower others to easily set up their own group meditations. He believes that group meditation should be fun and that it is the perfect place for people to connect, become friends and build a supportive community.
