Holy Week break is the perfect time to reflect on your life and be more in touch with your inner self. You won’t settle with staying within the comforts of your home to do so, though. Here are places you can visit which are just a stone’s throw away from the city where you can have a meaningful Lenten meditation.
If you’re looking to strengthen or heal your mind and body, you can sign up for White Space Mind and Body Wellness Studio’s classes that range from yoga, capoeira, and sound healing. They also have a healing room named Tranquility where you can receive wellness-related services like Tarot Card reading and meditation — appointments for which can be booked at the front desk.
White Space is closed on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, but will be back on business on Black Saturday. Check their schedules here.
Brahma Kumaris is a religious meditation movement that originated in modern-day Pakistan back in the 1930s and now has over 8,500 centers worldwide.
