Free Meditation with the Zen Center of Philadelphia (2017)

June 18, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Bartram’s Garden
5400 Lindbergh Blvd.
Philadelphia, 19143 United States

Disconnect and reconnect. Public gardens provide a vital opportunity to recharge and heal as we fight to survive, thrive and create positive change in a crowded urban environment. Pat George of the Zen Center of Philadelphia will lead us in sitting meditation inside the Bartram House.

Weather permitting, we’ll move outdoors for walking meditation in the garden. Put your phone away for an hour and be fully present with us.

Free!

The Zen Center of Philadelphia’s Pat George has over 30 years training in Zen Buddhism. Teacher, writer and avid reader, she’s also a single mother and has worked and travelled extensively in Africa and South Asia.
