Mindful Astoria December 2018 Book Club - Boundless Heart (SECOND SIT)
Our Mindful Astoria book club pick for December 2018 is "Boundless Heart: The Buddha's Path of Kindness, Compassion, Joy, and Equanimity" by Christina Feldman. We are repeating this book, since many members could not join or read the book last time. Join us at our book discussion on Sunday, December 16th at 5:30pm at the Astoria Bookshop (You do not have to read the whole book to attend; it is recommended that you read at least one chapter of the book)! We gather together to share our understanding of and interest in the book and its topic in a friendly and supportive setting. Christina Feldman is a prominent Insight Meditation teacher. The book is a course in the Buddhist practice of the brahma viharas, or "heavenly abodes" with detailed instructions from the Buddhist tradition in cultivating mindfulness.

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.
