The course will focus on aging as a spiritual practice and source of great wisdom. It will be open to all levels of practice and all interested persons, there is no age barrier! There will be five classes over five weeks; but our wish is to create an ongoing sangha. We hope a community of yogis will emerge who can support and share their spiritual home in the dharma with each other.

Amy Selzer has been practicing vipassana meditation since 2002. She has completed two year-long classes on Integrated Study and Practice with Andrew Olendski. Currently, she is part of the Community Dharma Leaders teaching program. She has led groups for the past 12 years and now teaches in several NYI sanghas. Amy’s former career was team teaching young children in an inclusion program comprised of children with and without special needs. In addition, she worked with and supported their parents. Her love of teaching continues. She is particularly passionate about the dharma and bringing it into the lives of the aging population as well as to all other practitioners.
Nancy Glimm has been practicing vipassana meditation since 1996. She has been a part of New York Insight Meditation Center since its inception. Nancy is a 2012 graduate of the Spirit Rock Community Dharma Leaders training program. Her primary teacher is Gloria Taraniya Ambrosia. Nancy leads the Living Urban Dharma Monday Daytime Sit. She is a psychotherapist in private practice with over 35 years of experience. Her psychotherapy practice is informed by her spiritual practice.
Rosemary has been a meditator for more than 30 years. She was introduced to the dharma in 2003 at the first Insight Meditation Society POC retreat, an event she attended annually for the next ten years. Her experience in 2013 of IMS’ three-month retreat both deepened her practice and created a commitment to attend a month-long vipassana meditation retreat every year. She completed Larry Yang’s two year Commit2Dharma study program and began teaching insight meditation at New York Insight after her graduation from Spirit Rock’s fourth Community Dharma Leaders Program. In addition, she recently completed her tenure as President of the Board at Insight Meditation Society in Barre, MA. Rosemary is grateful for all that this practice provides.
