Silent Sunrise Meditations at East End Beach
By Kaneel

Start your summer mornings with a silent mindfulness practice at East End Beach. Find balance as you align yourself with nature’s rhythms.

Upcoming Dates

June 18 / July 2 / July 16 / July 30 / August 13 / August 27

Most mornings, we drag ourselves out of bed only to be thrown into hectic and anxiety-filled routines. Join Kaneel every other week for a soothing morning practice where we’ll experience the gradual shift from dark to light and bathe in the first moments of the summer sun.

During each practice, we’ll come together in silence, just before the sun arrives, using the walk along the beach to slowly awaken the senses and notice our relationship to the land and elements. We’ll then branch off, finding a unique spot that calls to each of us, where we’ll sit and observe the movement and stillness of the land as we take in the panorama of the sun rising over Casco Bay. As the sun illuminates the beach, Davinica will lead a group sharing circle, where our first words of the day will be full of gratitude, acceptance, and community. Being present for our sharing circle is totally optional, and if you’d prefer to stay in silence, we welcome and encourage your presence.

  • This event will be held rain or shine.

  • You’re more than welcome to join us between 5 and 6:20 AM, but please arrive in silence.

  • Even though East End Beach does allow dogs, we ask that you leave your pets at home unless you have a service animal.

  • We ask that everyone remains at least 6 ft. apart during our self-guided meditation. During our reflection circle, we ask that everyone wear a mask (regardless of vaccination status) for the physical and psychological safety of everyone in the group.
