Community Gathering started back in March 2020 at the beginning of the pandemic as a way to help people manage their stress and anxiety. Since then, we have grown to be a Community of almost 3000 people from all over the world!
We have gone through so much over the last year. And even though things are "going back to normal," life still happens.
We still feel overwhelmed anxious, lonely, scared.
Community Gathering is a safe place where you can show up and process however you are feeling. You will be reminded that you that you are NOT ALONE. Many of us are feeling the same emotions.
We will start our gathering with a grounding meditation to start to calm our nervous system, and then we will transition into breathwork - an active form of meditation to help you release the stress you're feeling.
I can't wait to have you be part of our supportive and loving community! See you at our next gathering!

"I started joining Community Gathering since the beginning of last year. I had tried meditation before, but never had a regular practice. I tried your class and being a musician I immediately loved the music. I kept coming back and eventually learned the breathing. I now find Community Gathering as my anchor and grounding for the week. I started seeing the difference in me. I now have a daily meditation practice. I find that I am a more relaxed person, which can be difficult these days. It has changed my life! Thank you so much Ana!”
"I have really been missing my pre-pandemic life and pre-pandemic self. I almost feel like I’ve been in mourning for the person I was a year ago. Being able to bring that up during Community Gathering and let it go was really powerful. Connecting with others reminded me I'm not alone. Thank you, thank you. I am so grateful to have discovered this community and the beautiful space you have created.
Community Gathering is a sanctuary."
"I came to know you through Wespark while I was grieving the loss of my mother. You gave me such amazing support and provided a safe place for me through breathwork that I would be still so lost without you! Having you continue your work through a year of pandemic, closings, openings and general chaos has been my grounding, my lifeline, my sanity. I cannot thank you enough for continuing your work."
"I was introduced to Community Gathering through my therapist late last year and have been hooked ever since. Being a part of Community Gathering has enlightened me and transformed me. I gather my best insights and ideas while participating. In fact, I have more clarity and perspective in my life than I ever have before. I feel more present, more aware and more grateful. Thank you Ana for providing this space and allowing me to be a part of it."
