We invite all members of the community to join us and take this opportunity to connect with themselves and others. You can register at the event here
These weekly sessions are 100% inclusive, FREE and are NOT affiliated with any particular religion or ideology. Our aim is to provide a space for people to start the weekend feeling fresh and centered, and to experience the benefits of meditation.
During the session, attendees will have the opportunity to relax and focus their minds, which can help to reduce stress and anxiety. By taking the time to meditate together, we hope to create a sense of community and connectedness that extends beyond the event itself.
If you wish to connect further with your meditation peers, meet us right after meditation for coffee/tea at Tatte Bakery at 318 Third St, Cambridge, MA 02142. (Each party responsible for covering the cost of their coffee/snacks, Tatte bakery will serve as aa a meeting spot but is not related to the Foundry or the organizing parties for this meditation event, no place to sit are a guaranteed and attendance is optional)
We hope that these weekly sessions will be an example for the community, and that they will continue for years to come.
About the Organizer
Meet Maria Perez,
As a minority and buddhist, Maria has always been committed to breaking down barriers and promoting inclusivity in all areas of her life. She studied journalism in her home country of Venezuela before moving to the United States. She holds a Master's tech entrepreneurship masters degree from the D’Amore Mckim Business school at Northeastern University. Maria has a background promoting the achievements of the Latino Community and education with her work at El Planeta Media and edX. She has also worked on executive education at the Postgraduate and Medical Education Office at Harvard and Harvard Business Publishing.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and left her dealing with long -covid, Maria realized more than ever the importance of human connection without an agenda. She decided to promote a weekly meditation event to give back to her community and promote healthy habits of inclusion and communication, recognizing that our perspective of the world can be limiting if we only see it from our own viewpoint and that of those who are similar to us. Through her commitment to promoting wellness and inclusivity, Maria expects this weekly meditation practice to resonate with the community at large and make a difference in the way we approach our reality as a collective.
Maria currently works as a real estate Agent for RE/MAX Destiny at the Sandrine Deschaux + Co team.
