With New Moon coming up this Saturday, this week is a good time to recenter in mediation (whether it’s sound or coloring meditation you prefer) and reconnect with your community. Check out 10 curated events for Monday to Thursday in the greater Bushwick area.

Majority of the events in our newsletter are curated. Each week, we reserve a couple of slots for sponsored events (marked #sponsored), which we like just as much as the curated ones.
