Free Community Meditation

Join us for a complimentary 20-minute guided meditation to reduce stress and anxiety while strengthening the connection to ourselves and others. Karma offerings are our way of giving back to the LIC community and connecting our patrons to each other and to us as individuals on a deeper level.

Upcoming Dates: every Thursday at 6:45 PM

A Full Moon Affair

Join us Thanksgiving night to celebrate and give thanks to the Grandmother Moon (& bring your family if they’re in town!).
Ancient cultures measured time by the moon cycle and many have traditionally honored the moon through parties, gatherings, and prayer. The literal mirror of the moon as a reflection of the sun’s light symbolizes the way in which we view ourselves. Just as we cannot look at the bright sun directly, we are also unable to look directly at ourselves: we require a mirror to truly see.

Each month, SacredWaters holds a community meditation in our covered garden to celebrate the full moon and its myriad symbols and metaphors in a casual and social setting – holding space for the moon’s influence and serving as mirrors for one another.

Our ceremony includes a short astrological discussion, 10-minute full moon meditation, invitation to share with each other, and a sacred sound offering.The event is donation-based (which come in many forms) and space is limited. If you plan to attend, please RSVP or stop by SacredWaters in person/call 718.752.1414 in order to ensure a seat!

Upcoming Dates: Thursday, November 22nd, 8:00pm

Anxiety Workshop with Jennifer Varley, LMHC, CASAC, EMDR-3

Exposure to the current news cycle and social media has had an impact on many who have experienced trauma or stressful events. As a result a need to learn how to cope with this exposure is emerging. The aim of this workshop is to develop a basic understanding of how trauma and/or heightened anxiety impacts our mind and body. Traumatic experiences can range in type or severity but stem from real or imagined perceptions of being in danger, and also include vicarious trauma, trauma that has happened to others or has been witnessed but not directly experienced.

In this workshop, you can expect to learn about:

  • Different ways in which trauma can impact our system (body) and how to respond when being triggered.
  • How to be supportive of others who are going through a traumatic/anxiety- provoking experience.  
  • Evidence-based skills that will help you calm your nervous system when feeling anxious or “activated”. 
  • Alternative holistic techniques (i.e.- herbs/ tinctures, nutrition advice etc.) to support your body when coping with and healing from anxiety and/or trauma. 

If you’re looking for a personal therapist to dive in-depth with, this workshop will also provide helpful tips on how to search for and find the right professional for you based on your needs for healing. 

Jennifer Varley is a licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and a Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC). She maintains a private practice in Long Island City counseling adults who struggle with anxiety, trauma and co-dependency .
Jennifer has completed speciality trainings in Harm Reduction Psychotherapy and Attachment-Focused EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) an evidence based treatment to assist with  processing trauma, resolving phobias and treatment of anxiety disorders.  She is a NYC Medical Reserve Corp volunteer and is passionate about energy psychology, ancestral trauma, quantum healing,  nutrition, holistic health and social justice.
