The Mindful Athlete: Secrets to Pure Performance
Fee by donation; no pre-registration necessary
June 5, 2015
07:00 pm - 09:00 pm
George Mumford will give an evening Dharma Talk and celebrate the publication of his brand new book, The Mindful Athlete: Secrets to Pure Performance.
“George Mumford has written a fantastic book--inspiring, funny, and insightful. I’m amongst the people who have urged George for years to write a book, and I couldn’t be happier for him, and all of us who get to read it and reread it. Qualities like mindfulness, concentration, trust and the forging of a team spirit really come alive.” --Sharon Salzberg

Copies of The Mindful Athlete will be available for purchase via cash or check.
Fee by donation: Suggested starting donation is $15 but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds. For this event all donations are split evenly between the teacher(s) and NYI.
