New Year's Day Crystal Bowl Meditation
Tuesday January 1
2:30 - 4:00
5:00 - 6:30
After helping you move into a deep, relaxed state, I’ll be playing a set of crystal singing bowls. Each crystal bowl is made up of 99.8% silicon quartz. Our body has a natural affinity to quartz because our bones, blood, DNA and brain are crystaline in structure. Crystal bowls emit a pure vibration which is received by all cells within the body as well as by the energy body (chakras and aura).
The properties of quartz crystal are numerous and include assisting in opening the third eye and balancing the entire chakra system. The sound vibration of the bowls has the power to bring about a positive shift in our consciousness. As our awareness expands, we connect more deeply with our High Self, bringing us into a more peaceful way of living.
One Love Sangha
One Love Sangha was created to be a refuge where people of color and comrades can come together in support and community of each other and find nourishment and inspiration in the teachings and practice of Buddhism. We come together monthly in a community effort to alleviate suffering by practicing and studying the dharma together as well as openly discuss our experiences living and navigating oppressive and biased social structures.
Dedicated practitioners will facilitate practices in our meetings including: meditation, readings, dialogue, and mindful movement. We hope to provide space for participants to engage in deep listening and to feel free to speak freely from their hearts about their experiences in utilizing Buddhist and mindfulness practices in their life.
A suggested donation of $5 – $10 is greatly appreciated to help support rent for the space. Please see our meetup page for details on where our meetings will be held in or near Montclair, New Jersey. Our sangha is freely offered in support of community and each other and no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
"A sangha is a community of friends practicing the dharma together in order to bring about and to maintain awareness. The essence of a sangha is awareness, understanding, acceptance, harmony and love... The sangha is a place to practice for the transformation and the healing of self and society. -- Thich Nhat Hanh.
