Running Behind the Train of Happiness

Happiness is something many of us spend our lives chasing.  The subconscious mind often says: "My real life will begin once this happens ..." or "For now I am just preparing, I just need to get through this and then I'll be happy...".
 
How do we finally catch the train?

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.
