Sitting on PURPOSE

Lynn Trotta of Sagefire Institute will introduce the ancient practice of Sit Spot as a form of daily meditation. Unlike other forms of meditation, Sit Spot is practiced outside, where nature becomes the Master and thus draws forth the Master within. Participants will be given the inspiration and key elements to integrating this life changing practice into their everyday living so they may:

  • experience a greater sense of peace
-feel more connected to the natural world than they ever have before
  • feel healthier, more alive and more connected
  • discover a profound sense of gratitude

Please dress appropriately for the weather and provide for your personal level of comfort. Bring a blanket or camp chair to sit on as most of the program will occur outdoors.  Adults only. Free for members, $5 for non-members. Programs require pre-registration. To register, call 914-762-2912 x110. Meet at Cliffdale Farm.

Saturday April 26, 1:00– 3:00 pm
