Full Moon Meditation @ King Hussein Club
October 13 @ 6:00 p.m.
It would’ve been freaky if October 13th was a Friday instead of a Sunday, but this full moon won’t be seeing any witchcraft. Instead of gathering around the bonfire at the witching hour, pack a telescope and head to King Hussein Club this evening. Meditation Jordan are hosting a full moon meditation session that starts with a few welcoming drinks before diving into mindful stretching, meditation and tea time in the garden. Sign the form to let them know more about yourself and your preferred method of donation.
