I'm not personally in a meditation group locally, but in Marin County, Spirit Rock Meditation Center is a great place for group meditation. They have a group meditation every Monday night and many other meditation events and retreats suitable for meditators of all levels of experience. There is also a Buddhist meditation group called Shambhala Center that meets in San Rafael.
The bulletin board at Open Secret Bookstore on C street in San Rafael is a good place to look for meditation groups.
Or maybe some Diamond Light graduates would like to start a meditation group?
Anyone else have any suggestions?

So important stay aware of our vastness......

Spirit Rock
Open meditation is every Monday at 7 PM. First time is free, after that it is $8. (They also have dinner before usually).
It is Vipassana so there are minimal religious practices - it is a very friendly place to drop on.
In San Geronimo valley.

Green Gulch
Green Gulch Farm Zen Center, also known as the Green Dragon Temple, is a Buddhist practice center in the Japanese Soto Zen tradition.  On Sunday, they have a public program, which includes zazen instruction, a lecture, tea, and a public lunch. Instruction is at 8:15 and meditation at 9:15. It is free, though $8 for lunch.  It is just before Muir Beach.

Shambhala Meditation Group

It is a much smaller group than Spirit Rock or Green Gulch.
