At the beginning of the year, my friend Zena invited me to join her at MediClub. I didn't have any idea what I was getting myself into but I trusted her and figured if anything it would be an experience. I walked into a room of about 40 people my age and we all sat down and meditated together.
It was one of those moments where I was reminded that I was not alone.
When I learned meditation 18 months ago, I knew it was immediately going to be a powerful, life-changing tool. What I didn't know, was how many people I knew were meditators or were interested in meditation. There was a point (when I was uneducated on it) that I thought meditation was some woo-woo thing that I would never do.
What I've found, is that meditation provides me with better sleep, more energy, lower blood pressure and an overall sense of calm and clarity that I've never experienced before. I've become more conscious of my thoughts and actions.
All those perks for carving out two 20-minute periods for myself per day? I'm in.
I'm beyond thrilled to be co-hosting a giant meditation with the MediClub at Central Park SummerStage called The Big Quiet. It's going down on Saturday, June 20th at 4:30pm and will feature performances by Ibeyi and Jungle. It's entirely free. This is going to be THE biggest group meditation in Central Park's history. Grab a ticket before they're gone here.
Note: you do NOT need to currently be a meditator in order to attend the event. There are resources on the website and there will be further guidance at the event.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions on The Big Quiet or meditation in general.
