This is appropriate for BOTH beginner and advanced meditators. 100% of class tuition will be donated to the non-profit organization One Common Unity.
What to Bring:
All that’s needed is a pillow (meditation cushion) OR a yoga mat and a blanket/ block. If you have difficulty sitting on the floor, chairs are available too. Please note, there will be no physical asana (postures/ stretching) during this practice.
