Morning Meditation for PRIDE

June 13 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Join us by the pond to practice meditation before the Montclair Equality Walk. Feel free to bring LGBTQIA+ friends and allies.

Take a moment before the Montclair Equality Walk to meditate with Buddhist monks and have some practice discussions.

We’ll meet at 9:00am in Memorial Park, Maplewood by the pond and sit together to practice. Please bring a picnic blanket and cushion, sunscreen and hat. Also bring a mask.

The Buddha often encouraged practitioners to meditate outdoors, at the foot of a tree or in wilderness groves. Not only does nature offer peace and seclusion, but the serenity of outdoor spaces often has a soothing effect on the mind—which forms the basis for deep concentration.
