    SOCIAL MEDITATION

    with Maggie Karoff & Beverly Feldt

    Mondays, March 12-April 30, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
     
    Join us for an open-hearted exploration of meditation and community. Social Meditation is a powerful practice that guides us in developing a culture of “nowness” and a space to relate authentically with one another. In this practice, we explore what it feels like to speak and listen from our present moment experience. We practice communicating with bravery and vulnerability so that we can bring these qualities into our daily lives and experience our individual and collective goodness as a community and a society. 
     
    During each gathering, we will practice sitting meditation, engage in Social Meditation, and conclude with tea and socializing. There will be tea available at 6:15 p.m. To support the practice environment, please arrive by 6:30 p.m. If you are running late, please enter quietly up until 6:45 p.m. 

    Participants of all ages, backgrounds, and spiritual traditions are welcome. No prior meditation experience required. 

    $5-10 suggested drop-in donation. There is no advance registration.
     
    About the facilitators: Beverly Feldt was introduced to Social Meditation through a weekend retreat with Shastri Nick Kranz at Rockland Shambhala in September 2017. She notes, “I love the deep listening and deep sharing fostered by Social Meditation and am inspired by the idea that this is a model for a wider community of love and generosity." Maggie Karoff first practiced Social Meditation at the Boston Shambhala Meditation Center in 2013 and has been consistently inspired by the powerful ripple effects of this practice in her relationships and communities.
     
    Social Meditation was developed by Shastri Nick Kranz, under the mentorship of Acharya Adam Lobel, over the last 10 years. It is currently practiced at Shambhala Centers around the world.
