Drink and Not Think


Even if you’ve never meditated, you may want to begin Thursday night from 7 to 10 at the Gowanus Yacht Club, where the Jewish Meditation Center of Brooklyn (JMC) is hosting a fundraising event featuring a “Guided Drinking Meditation.” Yeah, we couldn’t imagine what that meant either, so we asked, and here is what Miriam Eisenberger of the JMC explained: “An experienced meditation instructor will lead participants through a short guided meditation that will use our senses (and our drinks) to help tease out the details we often overlook and tune us in to the present moment.” The $12 entrance fee will get you $1 off beers all night and a spot during the guided meditation at 8, which is followed by a silent auction. No prior mediation experience required, just an open mind and a taste for beer.
