A New Meditation Bus Translucent Teapots, and a Fashionable Plant Shop
In May, the renowned luxury German pen company Lamy will arrive in Soho (452 W. Broadway).
Carla Hammond is now behind the wheel of her new roving meditation bus BEtime.
“I’ve been meditating for years. A few years ago, I started noticing food trucks everywhere and I thought it would be so cool to open a meditation truck. I decided to use a bus: Ours was refurbished by the design studio Aidia. They installed 15,000 LED lights so we can provide light therapy with the meditation. We park, tweet our location, and then our classes ($22) happen hourly. Parking is a challenge — we have to wake up and start driving at 7 a.m. But I have a trick: Since we don’t have seats, just cushions, we qualify as a commercial vehicle. And those commercial plates let you park almost anywhere.”
