New! Weekly SANGHA SITTING for serious meditators starts Tuesday January 14th

45 MINUTE SELF-PRACTICE FOR SERIOUS MEDITATORS

Ongoing Tuesdays |  5:30pm to 6:15pm  |  2 Park Place, Newark, NJ

What is firmly rooted cannot be pulled out.
― Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

We are forming a self-practice, leaderless meditation group especially for maturing meditators who can silently practice meditation for a solid 45 minutes without guidance.

It’s a way to connect with like-minded practitioners and form a cohesive sangha — a soul group so to speak — regardless of each individual’s unique meditation tradition.

We know you’re out there, so commit to join us regularly to support each other and help us develop a meditative culture for the community and beyond.

Sangha “sitters” will have a 10 minute window after each session to engage and get to know each other before the next program begins that evening.

Donation-based. Suggested $5, but please donate what you can and only when you can.

Why meditate? … Why tie your shoes?

Like many things we do regularly, as monotonous as they might appear, there is always a purpose. We choose good purposes and bad purposes. To develop mindfulness and meditation can open your eyes to what is truly in front of you and help you to make good choices. It is proven to reduce stress and bring more focus to your mind. Done in community it expands to our ever-evolving culture and can result in a more collective peace of mind. You might even tie your shoes more skillfully, and as if for the first time.

Weekly Meditation & Mindful Movement | Tuesdays, 6:30 to 7:45pm | 2 Park Place, Newark, NJ | Donation-based, Youths free. | Translations in Español and Português available. Family friendly. | There will be no class on Nov. 26th.

Why Do Tai-chi? … Why totter?

We often totter with our bodies as well as in our minds. This flowing, ancient movement practice can provide balance and equilibrium to both. It gently brings energy up and grounds us in the moment releasing us from our distracted selves. Tai-chi can be applied anywhere — from behind your desk to how you turn to greet someone. Whether you are a millennial trying to de-stress, in mid-life recuperating, or a senior wanting to bring back youthful pliability, this practice can bring you well-being and a sense of oneness.

Weekly Tai-Chi with Shaka | Wednesdays 6:30 to 7:20pm | 2 Park Place, Newark NJ | Fee-based, Youths free 14-17 accompanied by parent. | There will be no class on November 27th.

A pin drop was Audible as they meditated..

In the afternoon of October 10th on World Mental Health Day, NCMC provided a meditation workshop for Audible in Newark. Facilitating this program for about 20 employees were Javier Cruz and Andrea Lee of NCMC. Javier provided guided meditation in mindfulness of body, breath, and mental states, while Andrea made the program introduction and led the mindful movement session.

The coordinator at Audible mentioned that the workshop was well received and that the employees attending were excited about an opportunity to de-stress, clear their minds, and practice mindfulness. We appreciate the second opportunity that this Newark-based corporation gave us to help bring mindfulness and develop happiness in the workplace.
