Looking for a personal introduction to Christian Meditation?
Donald Main (one of Fr. John Main's nephews) is available for private or public sessions to introduce individuals and/or groups to this ancient prayer practice.
Donald has over 16 years of experience with meditation, during which time he has attended multiple meditation groups in Canada, Ireland, Poland and the USA.
He started and led two weekly groups, one in San Francisco and another in New York City. He also led an introductory meeting for a weekly group in Mystic, CT, USA and helped restart a group in Warsaw, Poland.
Donald currently facilitates two weekly groups in Manhattan, New York City and attends other Christian Meditation groups whenever possible.
While the teachings on this way of prayer are simple, many find the discipline quite difficult when they begin and have many questions about the practice.Having someone guide you through the introductory period can be invaluable in helping you continue along the lifelong path of meditation.
Even though all are welcome to attend any of the free groups that currently meet in the city (see NYC link above), many are unable to or, for personal reasons, would rather not attend one of these groups. This is where Donald can provide assistance.
Donald lives in Manhattan, New York City, so he is primarily available for introductory sessions in Manhattan. This can be in a business/office, church, or a home setting.
The minimum number of individual introductory sessions is one (2 hours in length). However, the highly recommended number of introductory sessions is twelve, spread out over 12 weeks (1st session of 2 hours, with all following sessions being 1 hour in length). Each session includes a 20 minute period of silent meditation.
Donald's suggested minimum fee is $75/hour for one person. Fees for group introductions, or locations outside of Manhattan, are negotiated depending on the number of attendees and the location for the introduction.

Title text information
The silence is there within us. What we have to do is to enter into it, to become silent, to become the silence. The purpose of meditation and the challenge of meditation is to allow ourselves to become silent enough to allow this interior silence to emerge. Silence is the language of the spirit. -- John Main
