MEDITATION + MOVEMENT

SONIC MEDITATION

Join us on select Thursdays from 6:30-7:30pm for a free guided meditation and sound bath with Alex Beckman Sound.

Be lulled into deep relaxation using the sounds of singing bowls, gong, harmonium, vocals, and other sound sources to provide you with a meditative and healing environment. Lay down and enjoy. These Sonic Meditations provide a way in for deep vibrational healing of the mind, body and spirit.

There are many benefits to letting your body rest and relax during Sonic Meditation. Research has confirmed that listening to certain music can effectively and rapidly elicit the relaxation response and bring about chemical, hormonal, and cellular change that actively promotes healing.

Spring/Summer 2o2o schedule coming soon!

BROOKLYN BEE CORPS

In partnership with City Growers, the Naval Cemetery Landscape hosts Brooklyn Bee Corps, a summer internship that provides local youth aged 16-21 with a unique opportunity to actively participate in native plant and pollinator restoration. Interns apprentice with an experienced City Growers beekeeper at the Naval Cemetery Landscape and help maintain the pollinator habitat. Bee Corps interns will gain skills in beekeeping and environmental restoration, while learning about and gaining experience in the green job sector.
