Welcome new friends!
Whoever you are, whatever personal quest or professional mission has brought you here, consider this your launching pad for the next leg on your journey.
On this page, we’d like to share some pointers to our free resources as well as introduce you to our meditation offerings and programs to help you along your path.
Meditation is one of our core offerings. We teach and practice meditation on its own as well as along with all of our other program offerings. To get started:
- Visit our Why Meditate? page which holds the text to our printed brochure which serves as a beginner’s guide to meditation.
- If you’re in New York City, consider attending one of our meditation sessions in person. View our Meditation Offerings page to find out details.
- Whatever your location, we offer (for free) a sampling of Guided Meditations. The five presented are our most popular.
Offerings for Uncertain Times
At the start of the pandemic, and in the spirit of turning adversity to advantage, we began to gather online on the second Friday of each month. These gatherings included a talk, group meditation and some time for conversation. We also invited some special guests along the way. In addition to the gatherings, we’ve offered some classes, lectures, and meditations. View the offerings.
Our programs and trainings
We offer a variety of programs and trainings in various formats and lengths — many are offered with online options. Visit our Overview page to compare.
