Stillwater Meditation

Unfolding and relaxing into one’s natural and undivided self, this present moment is beginningless and eternal. Within our weekly group, a safe space is provided for meditators to explore one’s own relationship with life, ask questions, rest with deep inquiry, be compassionate toward perceived blocks, and melt into the infinite. Additional group meditations and private instruction are available upon request. The Winter Intensive is approaching on Sunday, December 23rd! This is an opportunity to deepen one’s practice. Abundant time in silence as well as satsang will be offered.
