Sunday Dharma Meditation at One Big Roof, 538 Maple Ave , Route 9
Dharma is a standard word for inspirational topics that support us in our emotional, cognitive, ethical and wish for well being and well flourishing.
The structure of the meditation is a sitting meditation for 25 minutes with a silent break, allowing people to stretch, followed by a second sitting, which is introduced by a brief talk.
At the end of the meditation, people receive a copy of the teaching. A discussion on the topic and some insights and reflections about the nature and commonality of our basic humanity is shared by attendees.
This meditation is open to everyone, beginners and/or those who have been meditating for a while. Guests can sit in chairs or on cushions, which we provide, for the sitting meditation. This group has been ongoing for over seven years. People of all backgrounds attend and all are welcome under One Big Roof. No RSVP necessary. By donation.
Please join us at One Big Roof (538 Maple Ave, Route 9). Questions, contact Pierre at 413-992-7012.

Breathwork Meditation with Brigitte Toussaint at One Big Roof, 538 Maple Ave, Route 9
Breathwork is an active meditation that moves stuck energy in the body (fear, anger, anxiety, grief and negative thought patterns). As a person breathes, their mind begins to quiet, endorphins are released, and the heart begins to open. This class will include the breath and an upbeat playlist. It’s like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. No prior experience with meditation is necessary.
The One Roof online store offers a variety of CDs that are very meditative including “Breath of Love,” which features all three of our Stress Reduction instructors – and Dr. Selma Nemer’s “Releasing Anxiety.” These are also sold at our 58 Henry Street main office – see Administrative Director Mary Kathryn.
