Date details +
    Room: Rockland
    Join us for a weekend intensive to explore the engaging and timely practice of Social Meditation with Shastri Nick Kranz. What is Social Meditation? It is a group practice that fosters a culture of authenticity and nowness. It is a practice of bringing meditative awareness into our social interactions so that we may experience our individual and collective goodness as a society.
    Over the course of the weekend, we will immerse in the practice of Social Meditation through talks, instruction, practice, and experiential exercises. By meditating socially, we will learn to listen and speak from our present moment experience. We will experience our authenticity and fearlessness in relation to ourselves and others. The training provides support for how to bring the practice of Social Meditation into day-to-day life, as individuals and leaders in our communities.
    Social Meditation was developed by Nick Kranz, under the mentorship of Acharya Adam Lobel.
    Who should attend? This program is designed for anyone who would like to bring the view of meditation further into their daily life, as well those wishing to develop leadership skills and learn practices to foster enlightened culture in their communities.
    Suggested donation: $150-175 or pay-what-you-can. If you are able to offer $175 for the weekend, you will help someone else participate. Many thanks!
