Mindful Astoria is for anyone interested in practicing meditation and integrating mindfulness practices into their daily life. Founded in 2013 by Emily Herzlin as a MeetUp group, we meet and practice regularly on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to 8:30pm. With candor and humor, our community group provides a space for discussion about mindfulness and its potential impact on daily life. No meditation experience is necessary.
Currently our Wednesday gatherings alternate from week to week between online (Zoom), and hybrid online and in-person. For our hybrid Wednesdays, we gather at Astoria First Presbyterian Church, 23-35 Broadway, Astoria, NY 11106. Please see Mindful Astoria’s MeetUp event listings for details on our Wednesday gatherings, including Covid safety guidelines for in-person attendance.
In addition to our Wednesday weekly gatherings, we offer monthly half-day silent retreats, host weekly silent sits on Zoom, and offer book club gatherings, outdoor activities, potlucks, social justice events, and more. Please see Mindful Astoria’s MeetUp listings for details on these and other events.
We care about bringing our personal practice of mindfulness and compassion into all aspects of our lives, both on and off the cushion: into our work; our relationships with others and with ourselves; the environment; and our local, national, and global community.
