Meditation Gathering KC

Location visible to members

We are going to meet up on the south lawn of the Nelson Museum and we're going to meditate in public. I’ll give a little bit of guidance and a short talk and we will sit (in the shade of course) and meditate together with open hearts and awakened minds. Why meditate? Meditation has been shown to increase awareness, focus, and compassion, among many other benefits. Why meditate in public? Because our practice should be taken out into the world instead of kept sheltered and hidden in sacred spaces. The world is a sacred place and we can show everyone the practice. Why are we doing this? We are trying to bring some awareness and positivity into the world instead of all the negativity we see all the time. Bring a cushion, blanket, or chair. Or sit on the grass. It will be fun. Or at least it’ll be different. This meditation is led by Daniel Scharpenburg. Daniel is a Meditation Teacher and an ordained Buddhist Teacher in the Dharma Winds Zen Tradition. He teaches through the Open Heart Project and sometimes does public events like this. He also has a podcast called “Scharpening the Mind”
