C.A.L.M. - Centered at LOFT Meditation

C.A.L.M. - Centered at LOFT Meditation is a group at The LOFT open to all in the community who are seeking a space to unwind and recenter. Join us for a variety of relaxing meditations, including breath, guided, mindfulness, mantra, and more.
This is an inter-generational program of Silver Connections, The LOFT's program for LGBTQ+ community members ages 55+. This program is open to anyone, ages 18 and older.

Due to COVID-19, this group will be meeting virtually until further notice.


C.A.L.M Meets every Thursday from 5:30pm-6:30pm.

In this time when our lives are very off balanced, a centering practice can be a useful tool to get through challenging moments. Utilizing guided meditation, breathing exercises and reading and reflection, this session will introduce a variety of practices to help you feel grounded and centered to better connect to your emotional core.

This virtual group is facilitated by The LOFT and Queery volunteer James Young. To learn more about James and Queery click here.

The April 15th meditation theme will be YOGA NIDRA
Yoga Nidra is an ancient yogic meditation practice that aims to induce a deep state of relaxation to help us release tension in body, mind and spirit. It is typically done laying on the floor but can be done seated as well. Through guided breath work, body scanning and visualization, we relax the body and mind to allow the release of somatic tension, clear the mind and allow connection with our Higher Self. This meditation technique is available to all body types and conditions.
