These teacher-led sittings provide an opportunity for the Sangha to meet with NYI teachers for meditation, a Dharma talk and dialogue to address practice issues.
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.
