Time for Stopping: Friday Evening Meditation with Asha Greer
Fridays, 6:30pm – 7:30pm


time-for-stopping

Asha Greer and rotating guests host Friday evening meditations from 6:30-7:30pm. Drop-ins very welcome.

These Friday evening meditations are an opportunity for you to embrace doing nothing. That’s right: nothing. With so much going on in our world and our lives, this is a chance to feel ok and at peace with *just* being present.

Asha will give brief instructions, and then the meditation will begin. Please come early. These classes are offered by donation, and your generosity is greatly appreciated.


Come join us for Silent Meditation at Studio IX as we take a moment to set the tone for the work day ahead.

Silent Meditation takes place in the gallery at Studio IX on Tuesday mornings from 7:00 to 7:30 am, and it is an unguided silent meditation. A bell will ring at 7:00 and again at 7:30 – folks are free to practice whatever form they wish to in that time. Afterwards, everyone is invited to grab tea or coffee in the café.

Cushions are not provided, so please bring your own.

There is no fee, but donations are both welcomed and appreciated! Proceeds from the donations will benefit Common Ground.
