Practice Circles

Support your own practice through the ‘Sangha’.

Peer support to practice Mindfulness

A practice circle is a peer-led circle where we come together to practice Mindfulness or Deep Listening or Focusing. Practice circles are not training or teaching sessions and are meant to simply support our own practice through the `sangha’. Practice circles are held online as well as in cities such as Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore and Delhi.

All circles

Reflective & Contemplative Reading Circle

This reading circle will use select passages from Gabor Mate's insightful work ' the Myth of Normal' as a prompt to spark discussion around the societal lenses through which we perceive mental health and normality and what could be the way forward. All are welcome

Mindfulness Practice Circle

These circles provide an opportunity to practice mindfulness, compassion, gratitude and deep listening in daily life. Without practice we can't deepen much into mindfulness and therefore our endeavour is to support circles that can bring in the joy of practicing as a ‘sangha’. These circles are offered by facilitators & alumni of Just Being and are free of charge.

Deep Listening and support circle for adoptive parents

We run a support circle based on the principles of deep listening for adoptive parents. Adoptive parents sometimes have no one to turn to to look at questions that come up while parenting an adoptive child. In the safety of the circle of other adoptive parents, this peer led circle engages in exploration of questions pertinent to the whole group. Every three months Online or in person (Pune)

Contemplative Dialogue Circles

The contemplative dialogue circles are explorations of pertinent socio-cultural-economic issues that affect us individually and collectively. It is a space to invite dialogue among people with seemingly different perspectives on the same issue. We listen and respond to each other from a space of silence and practice not taking sides and melting our 'fixed' notions of perceived 'reality'. Whenever relevant Online or in person Part time one year program

Focusing Practice Circles

We have regular Focusing practice circles that run online and in-person for those who have been learning Eugene Gendlin's Focusing in India and interested in inner listening processes. Last Saturday every month 6 to 7.30 pm IST Online
