I love finding serene spots in the city. New York City is home, and I enjoy all of the activities, events, and new people to meet, but sometimes I need to s-l-o-w down and relax. MNDFL Meditation has become one of my favorite serene spots in New York City. MNDFL is a meditation studio in Greenwich Village. The founders, Ellie Burrows and Lodro Rinzler met when Ellie began volunteering at Lodro’s non-profit, the Institute for Compassionate Leadership. Ellie asked Lodro why there wasn’t a “modern, non-religious, drop-in studio where she could explore traditional meditation techniques in a contemporary context.” Instead of waiting for a place like that to exit, they created it. MNDFL exists to enable humans to feel good.
