Finding Peace Within the Noise (In-Person)

with Filomena Leonardi

September 13th

  • $20 General
Room: In Person

Often life feels like a race—so much to do, so little time. 

Much of that race is in our thoughts—planning, regretting, dreaming, arguing, fantasizing—an endless inner dialog. 

Being bombarded with constant information adds stress. 

Are we doomed to dwell in the noise? 

Can we remain sane and clear minded?

Come for a fresh perspective on finding clarity within the challenges of our daily lives. Join us in-person for this evening of meditation instruction and practice, posture recommendations, and a talk followed by a discussion.
