PIP: Promoting Inner Peace and Bringing Contemplative Practices Out Into the Community
Every year Practices for Inner Peace Longmont (PIP) offers 2 community events intended to educate the public about the benefits of contemplative practices, and to share the contemplative practices available in Longmont. All events are free or have a suggested freewill offering. No one will be turned away.
- The Day of Meditation
“A Day of Meditation” is an annual winter event in Longmont for the community. The purpose of this free day-long meditation event is to share several contemplative practices to promote inner peace for the community, thereby cultivating kindness and compassion for all.
- Wake Up!
Wake Up! has happened annually in late spring/early summer since 2012. This event features a taste of a variety of contemplative practices in addition to meditation, including expressive movement, Dances of Universal Peace, drumming, participatory toning and music, yoga, qi gong, and tai chi.
The next Wake Up! event is scheduled for Saturday, May 13th at The Meditation Place.
