Rediscover the Joy of Presence

You are invited to an afternoon of meditation, discovery,  and inspiration at our next meetup!

Discovering the Joy of Presence: Journey Into Yourself


Saturday, April 6th

12:30-2:30 pm


About our Meetings

Our meetings are inspiring mini-retreats of inner peace and joy.

At our meetings, you'll learn about Eckhart Tolle's life-affirming teachings and find new strategies for dealing with the challenges in your everyday life.

The workshops are designed as serene, joyful events where you can experience a shared space of presence, an oasis of stillness, and a deep sense of inner peace.

You'll also meet a great group of like-minded friendly and welcoming people who are exploring Tolle's teachings, developing their own presence-practice, and embracing life to the fullest.

Our meetings are hosted by Leo Aristimuno, meditation coach and producer of the popular podcast "Living With Tolle."

    Such a beautiful, simple and well-held group. We created some very peaceful energy at this meetup with complete ease, in a very non-intimidating way. Great for new comers and practiced meditators.
