Open to all, this weekend program brings the wisdom of meditation into the vibrancy of social interaction. By speaking from our present moment experience, we co-create a culture built on authenticity.

Bear witness.

Cultivate fearless leadership.

Practice unifying body, speech, and mind.

This weekend intensive will be an exploration in creating a culture of authenticity and nowness by listening and speaking from our present moment experience. The foundation of good society is being unashamed of who we are. Empowering this quality in ourselves and others creates a culture of sanity and well-being. Social Meditation is an evolving way to experience meditation as a form of cultural interaction, which allows us to experience both our individual and collective goodness.

Who should attend? Open to all. During this weekend we will explore what it means to communicate authentically by listening and speaking from our present moment experience. The practice teaches us that it is possible to be exactly who we are in each moment. We will discover how to use this recognition to promote more authenticity, acceptance, and well-being in our communities and work with difficult situations as they arise. 

No prior meditation experience is required, but attendance is required for the full program. Class size is limited to 20 people.

Scholarships are available and no one will be turned away for lack of funding. If you are interested in a scholarship, please contact our treasurer at [email protected].

Friday night's talk is open to the public. Donations are welcomed for the Friday night talk.
