Meditation with Juliet Tablak

Mondays, 5 - 5:30pm


Free - Everyone welcome!

Join us and be still! The class is open to everyone to cultivate a personal meditation practice and to sit with others in community. Juliet creates a space for each person to be with their own meditation practice, offering some gentle guidance to lead the sit.

Join us in helping to create a more peaceful world for all!  In 1959, the founder of Transcendental Meditation Maharishi Mahesh said that he believed the world could be transformed if just 1% of the world’s population practiced meditation. In 1975, the results of the first scientific research on meditation were announced and found that in twelve American cities where 1% of the population was practicing meditation, there was a statistically significant decrease in crime rates.

100% Donation - Everyone Welcome!

The charge for the class is donation-only and 100% will go to a charity called Dancin Power.  Dancin Power’s mission is to improve and enhance the quality of life of hospitalized children through movement-based creative expression, music and dance!
