Event description

Description

Join Jon Kabat-Zinn and Rhonda Magee For A Special Benefit Event for The New York Insight Meditation Center!


Friday Evening, 7pm-9pm, December 1st, 2017
What Use is Mindfulness in the Face of Social and Economic Injustice?
An Evening of Conversation, Inquiry, Dialogue, and Practice

How does mindfulness have the potential to contribute in meaningful ways toward transforming and healing the dis-ease in our society and our nation, and the outright harm that stems from it?

The Friday evening dialogue will be a conversation on the impact of mainstream mindfulness on social change.


Saturday, 10am – 5pm, December 2nd, 2017
A Day of Mindfulness Practice, Inquiry, and Conversation in the Midst of Madness, Fear and Resolve

In the Saturday full day retreat, the practice of mindfulness will be the ground for investigating our place in this world, and our responsibility for it.

With these events, we will use the practice of mindfulness to awaken and inhabit the liberating potential of awareness —- in silence and stillness, speech and movement — in accordance with our deepest love, beauty, and wisdom; all this nested within the broader work of mindful and heartful social transformation and a vision of what a truly healthy country and world might look like.


The Third Decade Fund
The proceeds of this event will go toward establishing a Third Decade Fund for New York Insight Meditation Center. With rising real estate costs and other costs that come with a running a modern urban dharma center in the middle of New York City, New York Insight Meditation Center needs to establish a foundation of financial stability to meet the operating budget in its third decade. This will help ensure New York Insight can sustain and modernize its operation to keep the doors open for the communities we serve.

Registration Fees

Saturday Only - $150
