Into Balance is growing and moving! As of October 1, 2018, Into Balance has moved to our new location at 1620 S 70th Street, Suite 105 (Lincoln, NE 68506) in the Lincolnshire Office Park. We’re looking forward to seeing you here soon.
The free group mindfulness meditations on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month will be paused beginning in January 2019 in order to determine in what form and on what days and times these will be best received by and of most use to the community. If you have suggestions, we’d be happy to hear them. Just click or tap the envelope icon in the upper right corner of this page to send us a note.
The Lincoln Sangha, a meditation group based in the westernized Zen tradition founded by Thich Nhat Hanh, has moved from the Commons to Into Balance. We are thrilled that they have joined our wellbeing community. The Sangha meets every Sunday morning at 10:30 AM for sitting meditation (silent and guided), walking meditation, learning, and friendship. The Sangha is an open group that welcomes all.
