Postponed: Deepen, Soften, Open, Ease – How to Meet What Comes Up in Practice, in Life

with Amy Gross

Wednesdays, May 13th – June 3rd, 2020 | 6:30pm – 8:00pm ET

Please note. This program is being postponed to a later date.

If there’s ever been a time when we needed our practice to lean on – it’s now.

What helps the most is sangha, a group of one’s own, a place and time to sit together, develop gentle ways to untangle our tangles, dissolve delusion, see through the causes of suffering, and find peace.

Our practice can guide our minds to calm down and our hearts to open up. For all of us, it’s been said, “Take care of your practice and it will take care of you.”

This is a workshop for MBSR alumni and those with some background in Buddhist meditation.

All proceeds from this program will go to support New York Insight.


This program is being postponed for a future date.
