    The People of Color Meditation Group provides a kind and open community for meditators of color to practice. This group cultivates mutual support and understanding among people of color who find nourishment and inspiration in the teachings and practice of meditation. Join us for 30 minutes of sitting meditation practice followed by group discussion and social gathering.

    This group is open to anyone who self-identifies as a person of color. First-time practitioners are always welcome. Join us for meditation, food and conversation every 3rd Wednesday of the month from 7–8:30pm.
