Tuesday Dharma Gathering

with Jon Aaron

Tuesday, December 25, 2018 from 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.

There will be no Beginner’s Orientation to Insight Meditation in the small room. If you are new to meditation, please sit in the main room.

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!
