"Meditation...the PRACTICE(s) of finding personal peace."
I hope meditation becomes a natural moment to moment experience like breathing and BEING.

Meditation on your own.
Unfamiliar noises can be very disruptive as we are curious beings. When at home, with less unknown distractions. It is at times, much easier to find inner connection.
The comforts of the home may also provide "safeness", which can be easily connected to stillness, unless you live in a household with children, then nature...nature is usually best for finding one's...pace.
At home, or in nature, aloneness gives one a guilt-free release of surfaced emotional flows, allowing a greater sense of self-actualization as meditation is not always a pleasant, still experience. Meditation as a "practice" helps one MOVE through surfaced moments (instead of the avoidance of emotional rises by way of various common social addictions such as phone, tv, alcohol and drugs), Being at home or in a personal space to release and move through off balancing emotions is vital for personal balance.
Also, and this is a biggie, home helps you be in total physical comfort saving you from fidget guilt (which eventually goes away over time). You get to find your ideal position(s), wearing what you want, not caring about ego. A mental freedom from judgement energy occurs.
Being alone can be difficult to "bring up" and sustain the texture of "connectedness", as it is too easy to give up, be distracted and/or rush through an experience.

When humans gather, all is amplified, the energy is more powerful, and things can get super-charged. Plus it is part of the human make-up, to have a longing, a need to gather and be part of something bigger than our human experience. Humans are meant to elevate and evolve, it is in our cellular make-up.
People can be very...distracting, and their energy might be...displeasing, let's say. Finding a group which resonates with your personal vibe may be a challenge. When you find a collective that clicks with your focused energy, that, can be an amplifying moment for personal power and group health.
