Meditate and Organize: 21st Century Spiritual Activism

Thursday, March 9th

7pm

Arts On Site (12 St. Marks Place, #3F, New York, New York 10003)

The progressive activist community in New York City is at the forefront of defending the rights, values, and traditions that make this city and country great.

As we move forward during these next four years, how will we keep up with the challenges and pressure of building a progressive society? What new tools will we need to navigate the daily barage of social media, regressive policies, and fast-paced change?

Please come join us at Arts on Site in the heart of the East Village to meet and hear communities working on the frontlines of the resurgence in activism during the post Obama era. Learn a practical and powerful meditation that can be used at home or while demonstrating in the streets.

Our evening will begin with speakers followed by a class with light seated movement, meditation, and relaxation.
Ample time will be given for organizing/socializing in break-out sessions afterwards.

7:00-7:10 Seating and Welcoming
7:10-7:15 Official Welcome and Introduction
7:15-8:00 Speaker(s) with Q&A
8:00-8:30 Meditation Class
8:30-9:00 Breakout groups/organizing/planning

This is an event for everyone! All proceeds will be donated to the ACLU.

Together we will see how our personal experiences can be transmuted into powerful excelerators for growth and development, fostering spritual activism.

Meet others in community! Leave feeling renewed, present, and clear headed so that we may excel towards victory!
