    Room: Main Shrine Room

    San Antonio Meditation Center 2019 Winter Meditation Sit-A-Thon Fundraiser. 

    Equal parts fundraiser and contemplative community-builder—join the good cause that is good for you! Any meditation practices welcomed to join the fun! 

    12-hour open  sitting begins at 9:00 AM on Sunday, December 15th 2019 and ends at 9:00 PM. Sit for as long or short as you want!

    SASMC’s 12-hour Winter Meditation Sit-A-Thon is upon us! Whether you’re new to meditation or an advanced practitioner, please show your support by joining us––for one hour, eight hours, or all 12!––and deepen your practice, enjoy community, and benefit from talks and Art activities from many different mindful practices. Tasty meals, snacks, and warm napping spots all included! 

    You didn’t know that meditating could be a community practice?  At the Sit-A-Thon it is! 

    Find your favorite cushion or chair and sit to raise awareness of the center and to increase our ability to reach more meditators in the San Antonio Community! Each dollar raised will help us pay our monthly expenses and enable training of more meditation practitioners like yourself! 

    Enriching our community by raising money opens the door more often for our members and friends, and when we offer community events, programs, and weekly open meditation sits we can share our lives and brighten each other's ! 

    Our Winter Meditation Sit-A-Thon website is up and running. Let the fun begin!
