COMMUNITY SERVICE & LIFE
Act of Service
A practice we call action meditation - is an important aspect of our meditative discipline. Our lives have been centered around ourselves and as such, learning to live for others is an integral part of our study.
Together, we choose opportunities to serve the community and engage in deepening our action meditation, less our meditation practice becomes self-centered.
All of the community service opportunities are student-led and aim to build our experience of connectedness to the world around us.
Jan 2023, a local soup kitchen CHiPS which has been serving Park Slope community since 1971 put out an urgent call to the community in light of the recent influx of asylum seekers who were placed in Brooklyn. Brooklyn Meditation stepped up and raised $2,000 and made 250 sandwiches.
Our volunteers were from all backgrounds and ages. our youngest volunteer was 4 year.
