Genuineness: Overcoming Our Personal Fake News

Genuineness is being able to experience and express the truth of reality without getting caught in “fake news” arising from habitual storylines about ourselves and others. Meditation is training in genuineness -- learning to simply and gently be with our body, senses and thoughts without manipulation, moment to moment. The power of practicing in this way opens up the possibility of having confidence in our own wisdom and communicating directly from the heart. In this session, we will contemplate genuineness and deception, practice meditation, and explore the power of direct perception.

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, and a discussion period.

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 virtually with others interested in mindfulness.
