Frequently Asked Question...
Is this a religious gathering?
No, this is a non-denominational group. We encourage any and all people within the community from all religious backgrounds to attend as desired.
I've never meditated before, how will I benefit from this?
Absolutely! Our intention is to appeal to everyone by offering a taste of different techniques and styles of meditation so you find something that feels right for you to try on your own. Studies show that meditation can increase brain activity, reduce stress and calm the mind. No matter if you have meditated before or not, these classes will be basic enough for the beginner with some new things for the experienced meditator. In addition, meditating with a group may have a benefit of feeling more connected. Since this is a community event, we are interested in our community coming together from all walks of life for just one hour per month.
