This insight meditation course, co-sponsored by IMS and New York Insight Meditation Center, creates a space of ease and support for people of color to meditate together and cultivate inner freedom. Held in an environment of silence, it provides an in-depth experience of the Buddha's teachings on mindful awareness, illuminating a path toward healing and greater happiness. Those without previous meditation experience are encouraged to participate.
Our wish is to make this retreat accessible to any person of color who would like to attend. We offer a 'You Choose' fee option, charging a minimum of just $15 per day (total of $90). Those who can contribute more, however, help ensure that the community of POC meditators continues to flourish.
Free bus transportation is provided on a first-come, first-served basis between New York City and IMS. Please note that as of March THE BUS IS FULL and if you request a seat you will be placed on a long wait list for the bus. Most likely you will have to make your own travel arrangements.
