About the Teacher:

Shastri Elizabeth Reid
has been with the New York Shambhala community since the mid 80s, having been a student of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and later becoming a student of Sakyong Mipham. With a background in theatre, dance, and photography, she was inspired by the Dharma Art teachings of Shambhala, and for several years led contemplative photography workshops at the center. Realizing the importance of embodiment on the path, she became an Alexander Technique teacher and offers AT based exercises in most of her teaching. She is eternally grateful to have happened upon this lineage, these teachings and teachers, knowing that the incredible wisdom we hold is ours to call forth in these tumultuous times.

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 discussion.

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 with others interested in mindfulness.
