Sitting on Purpose
Saturday, September 13
10 am – 11:30 am
Lynn Trotta of Sagefire Institute will introduce the ancient practice of Sit Spot as a form of daily meditation that takes a person out of their head and puts them into their senses. Unlike other forms of meditation, Sit Spot along with its associated core routines of awareness is done 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 and 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.

We will have fun imagining the life experiences of the birds, insects and marine life that migrate the Hudson’s waterway and flyway. This event is part of the Hudson River Valley Ramble. FREE.
Stop by Teatown for an informal chat with Teatown’s Executive Director, Kevin Carter. The purpose of this get-together is for neighbors and Teatown members to come and speak casually with Kevin about current events at Teatown. “Coffee with Kevin” will provide a great opportunity for you to learn about and discuss Teatown’s many programs, future initiatives and projects. Kevin will gladly answer any questions.
