6/25 @ Pineapple Reality
Grounding Activation 004 w/ special guests Sandy Gordon and Colin Fisher
Facebook event with more info here
Perfect Wave and Pineapple Reality are hosting a series of listening meditations with the intention of bringing people in the community together in real life spaces to gather and engage in deep listening. The purpose is to activate grounding energy to facilitate a clean focused mind for the actions we all must take during this time. Discussions/lectures can happen afterwards but the primary focus is to create a space for listening. All are welcome. By donation as each can afford. We will provide yoga mats and blankets to lie on.
Doors and tea 3:30pm - Music 4 to 5pm
184 West St. #2 GREENPOINT, Brooklyn, NY
