ADDITIONAL DETAILS

Together, we will start slowing down in December and celebrate the month’s theme, Sound, by tuning into our thoughts and emotions. This is a moment to digest and distill this roller coaster of a year so we can find our center and embrace all the possibilities that a new year brings.

No need to bring a yoga mat. This will be a sitting sound meditation session. Sara will start with a brief talk and then lead us into a 20 minute sitting sound meditation session.. Breakfast will be served (as always).

Help us help the homeless

It’s starting to turn cold out, and 60,000 New Yorkers spend each night in homeless shelters, of which 23,000 are children. At this event, we’ll be collecting winter coats and jackets for the New York Cares Coat Drive.

The Coat Drive is a city-wide effort run by New York Cares which aims to collect 125,000 coats each year and distribute them to New Yorkers who need them most in the colder months. The Coat Drive has been running for 27 years and counting, having collected and distributed 1.7 million winter coats to-date, thanks to generous New Yorkers. They’ll accept all kinds of winter coats, but keep in mind they receive twice as many requests for large men’s coats than women’s, and they’re always short of children’s coats.

Don’t have a coat to donate? Text COAT to 41444. Just $20 gets a new coat to a New Yorker in need.
