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.”
