Sit & Schmooze @ Chochmat HaLev, Berkeley
Thursdays: August 9, 16, 23, and 30
Location: Chochmat HaLev
Prepare for the High Holy Days by cultivating awareness, compassion and community. In this group we strengthen our connection with each other, and support each other and our spiritual practice. We will begin with greetings and gratitude, and then we will alternate chanting and silent sitting in order to settle in and become more present with each other. We will have an opportunity to share what is going on in our lives through a facilitated check in over tea.
Perfect for those new to meditation and experienced meditators who want to strengthen the social aspect of spiritual practice.
