Gong Meditation

Sept. 19, 2022 at 6pm


 A Tibetan lama was asked how do you teach a child to meditate? His answer was to ring a bell and wait for the sound to disappear. The gong experience is a sound immersion of emotional crescendos accented by periods of silence, listening for the fade to infinity… Come join us as we journey together into the deep space of your interior. No experience needed, just a set of ears.

There will be a “We Are Meriden” Unity Rally on Saturday, September 17 from 2-4 pm on the Meriden Green. It is a rally to bring the citizens of Meriden together.
