Cultivating Awareness + Wisdom
With Alexis Santos
Friday, October 11th, 2019 | 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Awareness and wisdom are qualities of mind that together provide the ingredients for clear seeing and compassion to arise. These timeless qualities are essential for meeting the challenges of our current world and in helping us live a skillful life. This evening talk will start out with a guided meditation followed by a dharma talk on how to cultivate these essential qualities.

This program is open to practitioners of all levels.

Alexis Santos and Susa Talon are leading a IMS Urban Retreat at New York Insight on Saturday and Sunday, October 12th-13th, 2019. Click here for more info and registration for the Urban Retreat.
