Meet on the 11th floor in the craft room at LightHouse San Francisco headquarters to create with new materials, unpack thought-provoking prompts and spark vibrant conversation with guest artists from a fabulous local arts institution.

    Sessions stem from work with the view that we will revisit that work later in June.

    We offer a series of short, meditation-based practices each Wednesday morning for relaxation and stress reduction. The group is appropriate for beginners and advanced practitioners, and instruction is provided in all aspects of the practice. Instructor Jeffrey Schneider has more than 40 years of meditation and teaching experience. It is a virtual class using the Zoom platform—everyone is welcome as little or often as they like. Dial in, find a comfortable position, breathe deeply, clear your head, and de-stress.

    RSVP to Sabrina Bolus at Sbolus@lighthouse-sf.org or 415-694-7607.
