meditation in love park


While we were busy taking photos of the LOVE sculpture by Robert Indiana, these people were enlightening themselves through meditation. Neither of us can say we've given meditation an honest try, but we don't know how people do it. There's just so much to think about that we think it would be difficult "turning off" your brain in a silent room let alone in busy Love Park/JFK Plaza.

The heat on that particular day was almost unbearable. Couple that with tourists taking your picture and it's a wonder that they were all in such a trance. Extra kudos to these folk for their self discipline.

  3. I feel the same way as you guys regarding meditation, but this gruop session looks really cool. I love the dude with his feet dangling in the water. great way to cool off!

  4. Wow, what photos! I've never meditated before, but I wouldn't imagine that the middle of a busy city would be the ideal place! Or...maybe it's the perfect place! Everywhere needs a bit more peace :)

  5. i've meditated successfully once. at a mind/body fitness conference. if you want to give it a try: don't think about turning off your brain. think of focusing in on what you want to accomplish. it will go from there. (I had the same thoughts/ trouble).

  6. wow thats so cool!
