What we're about

In August of 2011, a group of meditators in Washington Heights got together and decided to form a community for Northern Manhattan under the guidance of James Loney. We called ourselves "Heights Meditation." Since then, Heights Meditation has grown into Heights Meditation & Yoga, Inc., a 501(c)3 community organization incorporated in 2019 and dedicated to bringing the practice of meditation to everyone interested in integrating more clarity, equanimity, and peace-of-mind into their lives.

Our web address is: http://www.HeightsMeditationYoga.org

Our email: HeightsMeditationYoga@gmail.com

Unaligned with any particular school of meditation, anyone who is interested in breaking through the isolation of meditating alone while also sharing new techniques and approaches to enhance their practice is welcome to join. It is inspiring and important work we go about and we invite you to be a part of it! Everyone, beginner and experienced meditator alike, is welcome!

Please note: do not be put off if it appears as though no one but the moderator will be in attendance. Most of us already know where to go and don't need to RSVP. Hope to see you soon!

Beginner's Guide to Meditation

Online event

Our Beginner's Guide to Meditation is an introduction to a variety of meditation techniques to help quiet the body & mind. We alleviate stress and return our bodies to homeostasis to help stabilize the mind and body so that we can begin to retrain our brains to move out of our fear-based perspective and towards a life with less suffering by exploring our thoughts, sensations, and perceptions.

30 minutes of Mindful Meditation at noon!

Online event

Mindful meditation trains our mind to be aware of what is happening right here, right now by learning to "listen" to our bodies and attend to all stimuli with clarity and equanimity. We stabilize the mind and body and then, together with the breath, attend to physical, emotional, and conceptual sensations that arise developing clarity about both our inner and outer experience. This practice sharpens our senses and connects us to life.
