Be Here Now

Be Here Now is an open, relaxed format meditation group based on the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh and the practices of mindfulness - we meet every Monday night starting promptly at 7:30pm and ending at 8:45pm. There is one session of sitting meditation for 20 minutes, followed by walking meditation, a reading, an open sharing circle and closing with a circle for gratitude and healing. The first Monday of every month the mindfulness trainings are read. Be Here Now is open to everyone and is free to attend, donations are always appreciated. No experience necessary.  Feel free to simply come on by and sit with us!
