What participants have to say about the weekly meditations

“I like the mediation, the friendly welcoming staff, the creation of a comfortable safe space, and the view of the Ramapo Mountains.  The opportunity for quiet reflection”

“The combination of a guided meditation and being in silent communion with other meditators in a completely comfortable room, with comfortable chairs and cushions.”

“I find the experience to be soothing, and returned to my desk more productive and centered.”

“I have attended both Wednesday night free meditations so far and found them both worthwhile. Each different because of the leader, but each type had fruitful results for the life thinking which I am doing now. I am so pleased to have found the Krame Center at this time of my life!” -Gail

“Love the meditation classes. They have added quality to my life”  – Myra
