On Monday June 1st, around 12pm, a Sacramento resident led over 25 people in a guided mediation at the state Capitol. D-D-A Ponte, who had been leading guided meditations before the pandemic reached Sacramento, shared a flyer on Instagram that invited anyone to come and meditate with him.

“Everyone’s fighting so the last type of person people need to be fighting is with themselves. So I wanted to give people an opportunity to just experience that peace within. As they go on throughout their days and do whatever they decide to do… That they do it mindfully, focused, and with love,” says Ponte.

He will be hosting another guided meditation in front of the Capitol this Friday at 3pm.
