SOCIAL EVENINGS WITH THE OMF
On the last Friday of each month from 19:00 – 20:00 (UK time) we will be offering a ‘Social Evening’ with guests from around the world joining our mindfulness community.
These monthly sessions are designed to bring the community together once a month with a range of music, comedy, poetry and other online, free events with a mindfulness theme.
Our first session is on Friday 28th October 2022 from 19:00 – 20:00 (UK time) with Adam Bernstein who writes, produces and performs his own music and is active freelance bassist in New York City. We will gather and explore what kind of music we can make after a short meditation and can chat about quieting the judgmental thoughts that may or may not arise. Active contribution is purely voluntary, feel free to simply come along and listen if you’d prefer!
