about the project
The idea for Sit in the City came about on March 7, 2020, days before COVID-19 was characterized as a pandemic and the world hung out a sign: Temporarily Closed. Fortuitous timing, as the meditation cards were imagined as a guide to support solo journeys of self-discovery (social distancing, check) without having to travel far from home (travel restrictions, check, check).
As the weeks and months passed, it became clear the deck was showing up for other reasons. It was being created so that…
…when the unexpected happens, more of us will have a practice that supports leaning into the uncertainty and unease that come with it.
…when we find ourselves in isolation, imposed or self-imposed, more of us will have a practice that helps us navigate our feelings.
…lastly, when life is upended and routines are disrupted, more of us will have a practice that shows up for us as honestly and consistently as we show up for it.
A portion of all Sit in the City sales goes to local organizations that provide food to those in need, which we view as a basic human right and collective responsibility.

about the creator
This manifested in her latest purpose + passion−driven project: Sit in the City meditation cards, a modern wellness toolbox grounded in ancient teachings.
Kim’s personal meditation journey began in a small Los Feliz apartment where she took a course on Transcendental Meditation, the twice-daily technique she would practice for nearly 10 years.
A detour into Vipassana, as instructed by S.N. Goenka, re-introduced her to the universal teachings of the Buddha, which inspired her deeper dive into the Dhamma and, eventually, her commitment to the Buddhist path. She is a certified Mindfulness and Lovingkindness teacher in the Buddhist tradition, guiding sits at her studio DROPin Meditation in Antwerp, Belgium.
Her path beautifully illustrates that life doesn’t come at us, but from us.
