Looking for more opportunities to learn and practice meditation in-person in New York City?

We invite you to join us for a Shambhala Sunday on Sunday, September 10th at 1PM!

These afternoons will continue to occur every second Sunday of the month. We begin with sitting and walking meditation practice (1-2pm), followed by a talk or workshop and discussion, and time for socializing and refreshments.

This Sunday's talk will feature speaker Samuel Bercholz in a conversation titled "replacing bad habits with good habits until there are no habits." Sam is the co-founder of Shambhala Publications, the preeminent publisher for authors such as Pema Chödrön, Chögyam Trungpa, Thicht Nhat Han, Joan Halifax, and most recently the Dalai Lama and Greta Thunberg. 

Open to meditators of all experience levels, Shambhala Sundays offer us a chance to practice and study together, meet and connect with other members of our community and refresh our sense of well-being, goodness, and sanity.
