Meditation Bar is Here to Stay with New Owner
by Tracy Sage King
It was a big surprise to everyone when Josh Walpole announced that he and his family were moving to California. And while we are all sad to see Josh move away, we are excited for the new adventure that awaits the Walpoles in San Francisco.
I have heard a number of times that many of you were concerned about the future of Meditation Bar, and I am happy to announce that I have purchased the business from Josh and look to continue his heart-centered management. When I look at the history of Meditation Bar, I am impressed by the love and dedication that went into building it. I am so excited to be continuing this legacy. Meditation Bar will continue to offer a wide variety of meditation styles and high-quality experiences and education for its community—from technical information about brain waves to immersion in sound baths, Meditation Bar offers something for everyone interested in meditation and mindfulness.
“Being a part of the Meditation Bar Texas community and watching that community grow has been the most rewarding time of my life. I’m so excited to see the energy Tracy has brought to the Meditation Bar. I look forward to watching our community continue to grow.” says Josh.
This transition started In May, and it has been my intention to have it be as seamless as possible for our clients. I have been leading meditations and sound baths for more than a year at Meditation Bar, and I have an extensive business background in the industry. I am former owner of The Rhythm Studio, a yoga and dance studio in Cedar Park and I have been creating awesome meditation events for more than I0 years. I am the former marketing director and a dance teacher in Rice University’s dance department. I have a BA in English from University of Texas at San Antonio and an MBA from University of Houston.
I bow my head in gratitude to the lineage of this beautiful community: Lauren Foreman, Cathy Bonner, Leslie Strickler and Joene Grissom, the founders in 2015; and Josh Walpole, who took over in the spring of 2018.
Thank you for making a commitment to meditation and mindfulness and for choosing Meditation Bar as your meditation home. I am here for you.
