Meditate in the Park
All are welcome to meditate surrounded by the beauty of Elizabeth Park.
Join an in-person outdoor meditation at Elizabeth Park in Hartford. Odiyana Kadampa Buddhist Center’s Resident Teacher Gen Khyenwang will guide a simple, brief meditation to cultivate a peaceful mind, concluding with a dedication for the long life of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the founder of the New Kadampa Tradition.
The meditation will be followed by time for socializing and enjoying the natural surroundings in the park.
Bring a chair or a blanket, and mask if appropriate. Everyone is welcome – including kids and pets!
** Please note: the exact location of the meditation may change if this spot has already been taken by another group. Look out for an email with updates tomorrow morning, should we need to move to another location.**
By donation only.
