Basic Meditation Summer Series

Outdoor Classes in Military Park with Cornelia

Wednesdays, June 14th – August 16th, 7:00-8:00pm

Newark Center for Meditative Culture (NCMC) will hold this summer series of basic meditation and mindfulness classes as a partner in the Military Park summer programs. The series will be taught by meditation teacher and neuro-psychologist Cornelia Santschi and assisted by peer-leader Kamilah Crawley. Each class will stand alone, therefore you are welcome to just stop by for a class or two. But, to get the most benefit it’s best to attend all if not as many classes as you can! This is a FREE NCMC/Military Park program. IMPORTANT NOTE: We will NOT meet on Wednesday, July 5th. If it rains or weather is inclement, classes will be cancelled. You can check in for updates at the NCMC Facebook Page or subscribe to the NCMC Newsletter.
