The practice of MINDFULNESS has become mainstream and secular, given our stressed-out nation and the scientific benefits mindfulness-based interventions has on mental health. It is also a metropolitan, privileged practice which is out of reach for vulnerable populations, particularly in rural Minnesota.
This totally secular, totally accessible, and super non-threatening environment is for EVERYONE to find their breath and find peace within themselves.
Laughing Buddha is unique, we are all about the SCIENCE of meditation and are not tied to any religious tradition. Our name is a NOD and an acknowledgement to these practices; our teachers and teachings come from a variety of backgrounds and approaches and are open to everyone. We aim to be inclusive at all levels, ensuring that those who need us most will never pay for our support and space.
