Mindful Astoria: Wednesday Meditation Gathering
Mindful Astoria: Wednesday Meditation Gathering Join us on Wednesday nights for meditation and conversation about mindfulness. Learn how to bring mindfulness into daily life, and how to establish, maintain, and deepen a personal mindfulness practice. Each class will consist of instruction in different forms of mindfulness meditation, and time for group discussion and connecting with the community. Depending on the week, the teacher may give a talk or share a reading about a related topic. Check out our group guidelines (http://www.meetup.com/Mindfulness-Meditation-Astoria-Queens-NY/messages/boards/thread/49250451#[masked]). Tonight's meditation gathering will be led by Morgan: Morgan is very grateful for this community right here in Astoria. This summer will be two years of joining Mindful Astoria most Wednesdays. She has maintained a daily/nearly daily personal practice for four and a half years, taking retreats and classes both in and out of the city whenever possible. Though initially she had an aversion to lovingkindness meditation (of all things), she has grown to love it and wishes each of you: may you be happy, may you be healthy in mind and body, may you be safe, may you live your life with ease. Mindful Astoria Every Wednesday, 7-8:30pm at the Astoria First Presbyterian Church. All classes are drop-in, but RSVP. $5-$10 at the door to cover meetup dues and support the teachers and the Astoria Presbyterian Church. *Note that no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Looking forward to deepening practice and strengthening mindful community with you all! NOTE: For the next several months the Broadway NW stop is closed for construction.

What we're about

Do you have a meditation practice? Want to start one? Curious about mindfulness and how to integrate mindfulness into your life? Looking to deepen your practice? This is a group for anyone interested in practicing or learning about mindfulness and meditation. There are so many wonderful opportunities to practice with communities in other boroughs of NYC--but not so many in Queens. Let's create mindful community right here in our own neighborhood so we can support one another and practice together. This Meetup group will be used to post local mindfulness events, meditation classes, talks, and more. No experience with meditation or mindfulness necessary. All experience levels welcome. If you know of a mindfulness event happening in Astoria (or in other Queens neighborhoods,) please let the organizer know. Please note: you do NOT have to live in Astoria (or even in Queens) to attend one of our meetups.
