In an age where to “perform” is constantly expected of us, there is another space that also exists. This space is peaceful. It supports power, not force. It connects you to yourself, the self that knows you have a mind and yet, you know you are something more. It’s a space that makes you feel safe, that energizes you through the connectivity and support of all that is around you…including our planet earth and the entire universe.
Over the course of several weeks I have been attending a guided meditation led by my friend Craig Hunter (Bio below). Craig takes you on a meditative journey over a backdrop of sounds and vibrations that leads to the above. When attending, I usually lie down on a yoga mat, on my back and lay a towel under my head. Some people do the same and others sit up crossed legged. I love this because my only requirement is to listen and let Craig take me on a magical journey. By the end I feel transformed.
The goal of this Happening is to experience an enhancement in your happiness and peace of mind. I have decided to produce the event in order to share this unique experience with my friends. Dress is casual, yoga or Work Out gear. We have everything else you will need i.e. towels, mats, lockers (Bring Lock), coat check etc.
Afterwards, there will be refreshments, small gourmet bites for us to enjoy and Equinox is providing free Mini-Massages. Additionally, if you are not already a member, you are free to use all the facilities in the gym for the rest of the day...steam room, weight machines etc.
This is a one-time event, so please RSVP ASAP, as the list may become full.

HOW TO ATTEND:
Additionally, we also would like to affect some positive change in our environment.
“ACE” Association of Community Employment Programs for the Homeless (www.acenewyork.org) located in SOHO NYC and founded by Henry Buhl, helps rehabilitate homeless people to eventually support themselves and flourish. This year alone they will have over 50 graduates. You’ve probably seen pre-graduates cleaning the streets and doing positive work in our city. They wear red ACE T-Shirts.
Attendance is free, but we ask those that can to donate $10 or more to help this cause. We are looking to raise $2,000. 100% of the money raised will go to the ACE Foundation. Up to $1,000 of matching funds has been arranged.
In the spirit of this happening, please donate. Any amount will really make a difference.
