“Are you able to come to a stop in your life, even for one moment? Could it be this moment? What would happen if you did?”
- Jon Kabat-Zinn, Wherever You Go, There You Are
In a world that never stops, where external noise rages on and internal voices are amplified, what better way to carry on than to create a space for us all to simply sit and rest in moments of stillness and silence?
All around the city, social meditation spaces beckon. We invite you to join us for a once-a-month community sit and get inspired on making use of public and private spaces for practicing mindfulness and fostering good mental health.
Anyone, with or without mindfulness meditation experience, is welcome to join The Big Sit. Each session lasts 45-60 minutes, and will be led and guided by an experienced mindfulness/meditation teacher. Practices will usually begin with mindful movements or walking, followed by sitting.
Please come dressed in comfortable clothes, and bring your own yoga mat/large towel, cushion, as well as drinking water. Participants will be required to observe physical distancing measures and wear a mask. You're encouraged to arrive at least 10 minutes earlier to set up your space.
