Shabbat Meditation Sangha

NOTE: we are off this weekend because Yogadesha has a conflicting event.  See you Saturday Jan 25.

We sit. In community. In silence. On Shabbat.

Our sits are unlike a class, where a teacher sets a topic and instruction ensues. In our community, you will find meditators with a wide variety of experiences, practices and approaches. We come together seeking the collective support and good energy of sitting together. Join us!

Sits begin at 4:30 and end at 5:30 at Yogadesha in Watchung Plaza. We begin with a brief orientation, offering a few words on intention and simple approaches to cultivate concentration. The first sit is 20 minutes—we take a break to stretch—then sit again for 30 minutes. If the leader is comfortable leading a Jewish chant, we may begin + end the session with one. At Yogadesha, a small donation ($5-10) is requested (please leave money in basket on bench). Consider leaving quietly with no pressure to socialize.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
