Event Details

Whether you are new to meditation practice or ready to re-new a committed practice, this is one way to help yourself stay grounded, connected, and calm this season. Who knows what will happen next? We surely do not know, though we can certainly create more intention to meet whatever happens next with more awareness, compassion, humor, and ease.  

“Serenity now, insanity later,” was Frank’s mantra in the 159th episode of Seinfeld, inspired by real life events and efforts to control rage, said to have been prescribed by one of the episode writer’s doctor. While it ultimately didn’t help Frank manage his over-the-top anger, it remains comedy gold for the universal display of frustration and trying to stay calm in the midst of maddening discomfort. Shouting can feel great in the moment, though any satisfaction or release doesn’t usually last for long, particularly if it’s followed by feeling exhausted and defeated, or worse, if someone you care about gets hurt or self-loathing sets in. Funny in a sitcom, not so funny in our daily lives.  


So, please. Scream into a pillow if you need to AND join us as we buckle up and practice together during the week before the election.
