What we're about

Are You Practicing Mindfulness Alone in NYC?
Life in NYC can be overwhelming.
The culture here expects you to be “on” almost 24/7. Mostly in terms of your job, but even when you leave the office, that intense pressure to be “on” doesn’t stop. There’s so much demand outside of work, whether through family or social happenings, that it becomes rare to get a moment to truly relax.

When we’re this busy, it can feel like we’re slugging through life and not really enjoying or appreciating anything we have. Being busy all the time can cause us to lose presence and awareness of ourselves and our world, which makes us unsatisfied. Even if the un-satisfaction is only slight, that feeling gnaws at you and slowly deteriorates your quality of your life.

When we’re so busy at work, home, and out in the city, when is there time to stop and appreciate what we have?
When is there time to stop striving for something more and accept what we have?

How can we make the time to become aware of what we think, how we feel, and how we communicate?

A few of us have taken up mindfulness practices to combat this “always on” culture, but it can be extremely difficult to stick to your meditation practice and goals of living a more mindful life without the proper support system.

Going at it alone makes things more difficult for yourself, and could cost you years of frustration.

It’s much easier to live a mindful life when you surround yourself with people who share your common goals and are actively providing you with feedback, support, and accountability.

As a culture, when we talk about communities and groups in 2018, why is it that 90 percent of the options are virtual ?
There’s a lot of power in face-to-face connections, and that’s the belief this group is based upon.

Instead of a bunch of virtual connections, in just a few weeks, you could have a real physical community of like minded people in NYC interested in taking a contemplative approach to life. There’s a real opportunity here to make new deep friends for life.

Being a part of a supportive group of people interested in mindful living can rapidly give you the feedback, accountability, and support you need to achieve your goals and transform your life faster than you could have imagined.

This group consists only of people who are willing to show up, work hard, and commit to living a more mindful life.
