The guiding intention of this mindful gathering is to explore the practice of meditation, and hold a space for relaxing and tuning into the natural clarity, openness, and presence that is ever-here. This gathering meets on the 1st Friday evening of every month from 7:30 - 8:30pm at CHANGE Yoga Studio in downtown San Mateo. The general format of the gathering consists of 30 minutes of silent, seated meditation, with some guidance offered in the beginning, and that followed by an open discussion on the various different methods, aspects, and approaches to meditation. This gathering is open to all, regardless of how much experience with seated meditation one might have.
To access the studio from 4th Ave. there is an alleyway called Ben Franklin Court, across the street from Starbucks. CHANGE Yoga Studio is at the very back of Ben Franklin Court. For those who are driving, there is also a parking lot behind the studio which can be accessed by turning into the driveway located between 4th and 3rd Ave. on the northbound side of El Camino.
