All summer long, the Tuesday night meditation sessions at Inward will be offered on the basis of “dana”, which is a Buddhist concept that roughly translates to “giving something without expecting anything in return.”
Normally priced at € 10, these weekly mindfulness meditations can be instrumental in maintaining your inner balance, resulting in more calm, happiness and self-knowledge throughout the week.
There is the opportunity to make a donation, though none is required or expected.
To join the Tuesday night meditations, RSVP here or by messaging Merijn directly. We meet at our usual venue, Werf5, which is located on the Oudegracht aan de Werf 5. We start at 8 PM.
See you there!
