A Special Benefit for New York Insight

An Evening with Joseph Goldstein and Dan Harris: Staying Sane in a Crazy World

Thursday, December 5th, 2019 | 7:00pm – 9:00pm

At Marble Collegiate Church on 1 W. 29th St, New York, NY

Join Joseph Goldstein, one of our most beloved teachers, as he’s interviewed by Dan Harris, ABC anchorman and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller “10% Happier.”

Their wide-ranging conversation will begin with how our practice can help us deal with the shockwaves–political and personal– hitting our lives.

We’ll also travel with Joseph through his own journey on the Buddhist path, and hear his perspective on the explosion of interest in meditation and mindfulness since he and a few friends imported this wisdom tradition to the US almost 50 years ago.

After a lively conversation, we’ll open up the evening to the audience for a Q&A session with Joseph and Dan – so bring your questions!
