Check in for 5ish min
7:35pm Meditation (half guided) meditation
8:00pm Interview

Meditation: If you want to go further in your mindfulness practice than listening to Headspace when you are stressed, don't want to be part of a weird seance and are not necessarily looking to become a Buddhist but think the Dalai Lama, Jon Kabat-Zinn and others seem to be on to something about living a meaningful life, this group is for you.

Interviews: In an Inside the Actors Studio style, each month will feature a local or visiting teacher, coach, scientist, business owner or community creator. Our focus is to get inside the minds and practice of people who are bringing more well-being to our communities and in the process learn something deeper about ourselves.

Wellness Wednesdays @ General Assembly

Take a break from your busy week and join GA for our Wellness Wednesday for an evening of yoga and meditation. Leave the stresses of work and life behind as you sit through a guided class. Learn various techniques of yoga and meditation that will help you breeze through the rest of your week. Sessions are based on a first-come, first-served basis. Upon check-in, you will be asked which session you would like to attend. Please find descriptions below!

Featured Meditation Workshop, led by William Jackson

This mindfulness class will include a little science, a little philosophy and a little dark chocolate. We will start the class with a clear intention and then go deeper into understanding how meditation works on the brain and body and then learn a simple set of meditations you can continue practicing when you get home. Participate in walking, eating and sitting meditation and learn how to both listen and communicate in a more meaningful and mindful way. Leave feeling refreshed and like you got a mental workout that will make you feel clearer and more confident about the direction of your life.
