It’s “Meditation Summer” on Governors Island


Gov Island Your summer just got way more mindful.

From June 6 to July 12, 2015, an event series called Meditation Summer is taking over Governors Island in New York City, hosting totally free guided meditations on Saturdays and Sundays, plus a special exhibit on meditation and the brain. Sure, it’s a lot different than the Governors Ball, but if your to-do list is stressing you out 24/7, you probably need this event even more.

The series was created by technical product developer Nili Suhami in collaboration with the Rama Meditation Society. “We are thrilled to be launching Meditation Summer with these extraordinary experts and Zen Masters,” Suhami says. “Governors Island will provide us with a truly special setting for these unique weekend sessions.” (It’s definitely the site of the most hammocks in NYC, so if you feel like a nap later…)

In terms of teachers, you’ll find more old-school experts (as opposed to mod gurus a la Donna D’Cruz) like author and speaker Liz Lewinson, Integral Zen founder Doshin Michael Nelson Roshi, and Buddhist monk Hui Neng Stan Koehler.

And hey, you can use your new skills to stay calm while you battle throngs of tourists boarding the ferry, after. —Jamie McKillop
