For anyone who's considering setting up a local Amida group in their area, and for people currently running local groups. A place to share expertise and resources, and for us to support each other.

I hope that this group will give us a space to talk about how we can develop local Amida groups - from the beginning where one person asks their friend to come round to their house and practice once a fortnight, to developing the group into something more organised.
It'd be wonderful if those who run local groups could add a post with their experience of starting/running their groups.
Do let me know what you'd like from this group, whatever stage you're at, and do invite anyone who you think might be interested in joining. I'm in the process of asking some more experienced members whether there are already resources that we could use here too.
Sujatin has created a new website to accompany this group where she'll post all kinds of resources... there are already some there now. Do join: http://lotusinthemud.typepad.com/amida_groups/
