Saturday Morning Group Meditation
Our weekly meditation sessions are moving back to Saturday mornings. The sessions are focused on helping beginner's learn the basics of meditation as well as providing more experienced practitioners time to practice their meditation in a supportive community setting. The sessions are designed to be beneficial and welcoming to everyone. Our group meditation sessions will begin at 10:15 am to accommodate the Textured Dance class schedule. We appreciate if attendees consider making a small donation to help cover costs of heating the space, the meetup semi-annual fees, and to purchase meditation cushions for the group - however all are welcome regardless of ability to donate. Suggested donation is $2-3 for each session and can be paid via cash, paypal, square or chase quick pay at the end of the session.
