Sit on May 11th!
The Brooklyn Sit-a-thon will take place on May 11th between 9am and 7pm at Brooklyn Zen Center, 505 Carroll Street, Suite 2A, between 3rd and 4th avenues. We ask that all Brooklyn Sit-a-thon participants arrive at Brooklyn Zen Center between 8:15 and 8:45am. We understand that not everyone is able to take part the entire day. As long as your sponsors are informed about the length of your commitment, we are fine with people coming in and out.
Refreshments and vegetarian snacks will be provided throughout the day. Unfortunately we cannot address every dietary request. So if you have allergies or needs that a broader vegetarian diet will not address, we ask that you please bring your own meal or plan to eat nearby. There are many restaurants in the area.
We will be providing both cushions and chairs for sitting meditation. Unless an extraordinary number of people opt for one over the other, we should be able to supply you with what you need. The registration form allows you to designate your preference.
At 8pm will be an after party for all who took part in the day.
To participate in the sit-a-thon, please fill out this form to register directly for the event. In addition, please set up a First Giving account here, which will allow you to raise donations online and track your progress against your own goals.
