September, traditionally known as our “back to school” month is also a time for healing and reflection.
Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh’s presentation at the Beacon Center places mindfulness and global peace as center stage for world transformation.
The anniversary of September 11th invites us to reflect and travel within, that is why the Meta Center opens its doors to the entire NYC community for a free open house where introspection and sharing will take place.
Join in sacred community, blessings,

The Embodied Life: Cultivating Awareness Through Meditation, Guided Inquiry and the Teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais
The Open Center: 22 E 30th St (Madison & Fifth Av)
All methods devoted to human potential emphasize the importance of awakening to the present moment. All the things we long for—love, joy, peace, harmony, truth—require the capacity for presence, i.e., the ability to sit with our own thoughts, welcome our feelings/emotions, and find comfort and ease in our own bodies. In this workshop we will practice a form of meditation that offers us a simple but powerfully effective approach to experiencing the present moment.
