On Monday I took part in a group meditation in a multi-faith chapel. The chapel itself has a lovely atmosphere, being the place of worship of people from several different faiths who share the same workplace. Add to this a group of people who are enthusiastic about meditating together, and the atmosphere became lovely and intense. It seemed that the group atmosphere started to carry each person, so each person found it easier to stay in the zone than if they were meditating alone. Time flew by and it felt as if we could have sustained (or been sustained by) the atmosphere a lot longer.
