Samsara House 2023's powerful democratized 
meditation workshops offered in D.C. and now weekly classes in Virginia!
Launching August 2016

Mindfulness has become very trendy these days because it is known to have many benefits for our overall health and well-being.  Many studies indicate how mindfulness can reduce stress and improve our overall wellness.  In addition to our monthly offerings in D.C. at Samsara House 2023, Bennett Crawford and Cullen Kowalski will offer new weekly meditation classes and a monthly meditation workshop series at East meets West Yoga in Vienna, VA. A weekly one-hour mindfulness meditation class will be offered every Sunday evening for anyone who would like individual support in strengthening their mind and stabilizing their attention--sort of like strength training for the mind.  A monthly 2-3 hour workshop series on mindfulness meditation in daily life will be offered for anyone who would like to learn how to effectively bring the fruits of their meditation practice into the real world, where it matters most.  Both the weekly evening meditation classes and the monthly workshops launch in August 2016.

In these classes and workshops, you will not only learn tools on how to reduce stress and improve wellness but you will also learn to develop a deeper trust and wisdom within and take mindful awareness “off the cushion” into your daily life.  In the workshops, you will learn insights, tools and practices to become more present in life and discover its true value when you engage in “interpersonal” mindfulness or mindful mutuality with others. Mindfulness is not just a solo activity we engage in once in the morning and once at night; it’s a way of being in the world from a deeper place of trust, wisdom and compassion thus transforming the very way we engage with each other on a daily basis.
