30s and Under Gathering/Social Meditation

Mondays, 7:15 – 9:15 pm | $5 suggested donation

The 30s and Under gathering is a great opportunity to connect with other young people in the New York City area who are interested in meditation. The evening begins with meditation practice, with instruction provided for anyone coming for the first time or who would like a review. Sitting meditation is followed by Social Meditation practice, which is an embodied exploration of bringing meditative awareness into our interactions with others. The evening concludes with refreshments and time for socializing in a vibrant community atmosphere.

To support the practice environment, doors will close at 7:45pm. If you arrive after this, we encourage you to join us again next week.

There is no registration. The suggested donation is $5 – $10. This greatly helps to support these types of programs at the Shambhala Center as well as provide snacks for the evening’s post-meditation session reception.

Please note that the first fifteen minutes of the evening is free time to settle in, have tea, and meet new people before the meditation period begins at 7:30.
