The Marin Lawyers’ Meditation Group provides an opportunity for lawyers (and allied professionals, including any member of MCBA) to take a lunchtime break from their day to meditate and connect with fellow meditators. Founded by lawyers a number of years back, the group provides a space to meditate away from the office and discuss the challenges of practice—both legal and meditative.
