“Men anpil, chay pa lou.”
Many hands make the load light.
As we move into another year, New York Insight would like to thank those sangha members who were so generous with their time, creative energy, and presence – the volunteers.
A little history: in 1997 a group of like-minded individuals committed to realizing their vision of a center to help cultivate awareness and foster a contemplative life right in the heart of one of the world’s busiest cities.
To achieve this vision, NYI is an almost entirely volunteer-run organization. To help deliver our programs, we have always relied heavily on a small but committed group of people. In return, these dedicated individuals have the satisfaction of knowing NYI couldn’t exist without them.
These volunteers assist in almost every way possible: from answering emails, updating the website, and creating monthly flyers to cleaning the center and opening and closing the center for events and weekly sits. Many of them have been with New York Insight since the beginning and many serve in more than one capacity.
New York Insight would like to acknowledge the following people who made 2013 a great year. We bow in deep gratitude to your continued generosity, support & practice.
On behalf of Sebene Selassie, Executive Director; Dalila Bothwell, Deputy Director; and the NYI Board of Directors and Teachers – THANK YOU!
