Tuesday Dharma Gathering
 
with Angela Dews and Wildecy de Fátima Jury
 
Tuesday, March 19th, 2019 | 7:00pm-9:00pm
 

 
The Tuesday Dharma Gathering provides an introduction to Insight Meditation, as well as an opportunity to meditate in a supportive environment. These teacher-led gatherings offer the opportunity to meet teachers, hear a dharma talk, and participate in a dialogue about how to apply the principles of Buddhist meditation to our daily lives.

If you are new to Insight, you can attend the Beginner’s Orientation to Insight Meditation for guided meditation instruction from 7-8pm.

If you are new to New York Insight or an experienced meditator, we encourage you to attend this open, community gathering and bring your friends. All are welcome!
