Open Floor Refuge: Meditation in Motion

  • Masonic Lodge 890 Church Street Mountain View, CA, 94041 United States (map)
“We meditate for those blessed moments where there is a gap - a pause in the incessant narrative that we are listening to all the time.  To simply be aware of all that is moving inside and around us, including everything and resisting nothing, we suddenly feel the great spirit that we are.”

Lori Saltzman, Open Floor Co-Founder

For centuries people have used meditation to move beyond the mind’s stress producing thoughts into mindful awareness. There are many meditation techniques and on the Open Floor we have a simple form — we sit, we walk, and we dance in cycles.

Refuge offers us a place to gather each week and practice resting into the non-doing to see what happens.  This is how we build the resilience to respond rather than react to our internal and external stressors. As the quiet voice inside becomes more accessible, life is more spacious, we make better choices, and we have the capacity to meet the unexpected with curiosity.

Session starts at 7pm, there is no entry after 7:20pm.
