"Give your sheep or cow a large, spacious meadow.” Suzuki Roshi

This “talk" will be a practical,  experiential exploration of how to accommodate all of our experience, especially when it is challenging or unpleasant such as physical or emotional pain and when we are triggered. 
Hope will teach the mechanics of easy, balanced upright (which is recommended for sitting meditation and all activities) and then utilize that as the basis for accessing more space, acceptance and loving kindness in our lives.

About the Dharma Gathering

The Dharma Gathering is a perfect introduction to meditation practice and the Shambhala teachings, as well as an opportunity to connect with like-minded New Yorkers. The evening consists of guided meditation, a talk by one of our teachers, discussion, and a reception.

This open house is an opportunity to meditate in a supportive group setting, to learn about how to apply the principles of meditation to daily life, and to meet and mingle with others interested in mindfulness.

If you’re new to Shambhala NYC, we definitely encourage you to join us on a Tuesday night. Bring your friends!
