Three’s a Trend: Urban Meditation Destinations (New York Times)

Inspired by their own love of conscious quietude, a trio of women in Los Angeles and New York are bringing nirvana to the jaded masses.

Wedged in Los Angeles’s design-fertile District La Brea, the Den’s cozy vibes are thanks to a mosaic of succulents, cognac leather sofas and traditional zafu cushions. Its owner Tal Rabinowitz, a former NBC executive, opened the space yesterday with classes like the AM Energizer and the candlelit Evening Unwind, and workshops focusing on business success — and self-compassion.
