A Meditation Group for Young Adults Under 40

Meeting Times:
Tuesdays 6:30 – 7:45 PM

MindSpace is an open community gathering of young adults 18-40 years of age. Through meditation we foster a clear mind, compassionate heart, and develop an intimacy with human experiences. We encourage and support each other in daily practice to embody mindfulness in everyday life.

We come together with open hearts and curious, non-judgmental minds to explore meditation practices and share experiences in bringing practice to daily life. Together we create a supportive community, including everyone– from every background, race, gender identity, orientation and ability.

Please email info@bozemandharmacenter.org if childcare would be helpful for you to attend this group.
