The EA Meditation Community is a project aimed at connecting people in the Effective Altruism community through meditation. Now, you might like meditation, you might want to join our courses and guided meditations, but can you consider yourself part of the EA community?

Who do we consider part of the EA community?

First things first, this is not the official definition of "being part of the EA community", this is just the one we use. We're not aware of any official criteria.

We consider anyone that wants/tries to dedicate a part of their life to Effective Altruism a part of the EA community.

Some examples of people we consider part of the EA community:

  • You are interested in EA; you enjoy learning, reading and discussing the topic and you hope to contribute something in the future.
  • You are dedicating parts of your life to EA.

Maybe you're new to Effective Altruism, no worries! There are a lot of resources out there. A great place to start:
