This election cycle has been a time of high anxiety for everyone. On Election Night, it can be all too easy to get swept up in the stress of being glued to the TV or computer screen, tracking the election results under a barrage of commentary from talking heads. But why not turn off the returns and turn inward instead? After casting your vote, join Sam Cooper to find refuge from election anxiety in mindfulness meditation practice and supportive community.

All levels of experience are welcome! Join from anywhere via Zoom!

About Sam Cooper

Sam Cooper was first exposed to Buddhism in high school, at the Tibetan temple outside his hometown of Poolesville, MD. After college, he studied Zen–his first introduction to formal meditation. In the years since, he has transitioned to practicing insight (vipassana) meditation, and now leads art and mindfulness classes. Having experienced for himself the transformative and healing power of meditation, and inspired by the tenets “engaged Buddhism,” Sam hopes to share the deep benefits of practice with others for the good of all beings on the planet. Sam is currently pursuing a Masters degree in Social Work at University of Maryland. He is also an active songwriter and musician, and makes meditation-inspired drawings and paintings.
