Join Tibet House US for a special, free event: a last meditation of 2020.

On December 31st at 2 pm EST we will let go of 2020 and set intentions for 2021. We will offer ourselves compassion for the struggles we have experienced this year, and cultivate a state of mind that will allow us to move forward with an open heart.

Guided by Elizabeth Pyjov, the meditation will combine elements of mindfulness, compassion, self-compassion, intention-setting practice, and honoring our common humanity in what has been a challenging year. Please join us for this 20-minute guided meditation to connect as a community before we move into 2021.

The event is free, but you do need to register to receive the Zoom link. All are welcome, from anywhere in the world.

Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced meditation practitioner, we hope you join.
