Meditation for the modern mind
We make space for healthy minds with meditation classes
Modern times require a modern approach to meditation and that’s what The Now is all about. And, well, it’s time to help more humans feel all that goodness.
The NOW teaches ancient meditation techniques in a modern way. Our teachers guide you through an energizing, mindfulness, mantra and/or intention-oriented meditation. Each of these techniques has a powerful, and different, effect on the mind.
Classes are designed for all levels!
GIVE THE GIFT OF MEDITATION
(Gift cards are valid for 6 months.)
If you want to be able to focus on demand, access calm, have more control over your brain, you’re going to want to meditate. The benefits of meditation are endless and scientifically proven. Visit our ‘Why meditate’ page to learn about all the science and benefits.
You can wear anything you like to The NOW, as long as you can sit comfortably. People come in suits, dresses, yoga pants and everything in between.
The NOW exists to make meditation accessible to everyone. With that in mind, we have chairs, two types of cushions (zafu and zabuton), and backjacks (for extra back support) for you to choose from.
That’s okay. We won’t hit you with a stick (like they would at a zen monastery). Here, we just ask you to move mindfully to reposition.
Thinking is natural in meditation. In fact, the practice is noticing what you’re thinking, being aware of what you’re thinking, and then redirecting your focus to a single focal point that your teacher will guide you to. Think of it like bicep curls but for your brain. The more you do this the more you will actually strengthen and grow your brain.
We ask that you arrive at least 10 minutes before the class starts so you have plenty of time to get settled. Otherwise, for busy classes, if you have booked but not shown up 5 minutes before the class, we might need to allocate your spot to our waitlist.
We invite people to stay after the practice to meet other meditators and socialize, but this is not required. You can head out as soon as the practice is finished.
We have a strict policy for starting and ending classes on time. Unfortunately, if you are late, you will not be let into class so as to not disturb our meditators. Please always arrive early, plan time for possible traffic, parking, etc.
