FREE - Street Retreat with a Buddhist Monk
You don't need to go to a meditation center to do a retreat - the city is full of open spaces! Come join Bhante Suddhāso and the Buddhist Insights crew on a unique retreat experience: meditating in parks, plazas, and subway stations all over New York City! We'll begin in the morning at a designated starting point; after that, we'll roam the city together by public transit, stopping periodically for periods of group meditation. If you're joining late, check out @BUDDHISMNYC on TWITTER to find out where we are! Send us an email: RSVP@BUDDHISTINSIGHTS.COM Not in NYC? Go meditate outdoors, take a picture and tag #STREETRETREAT on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook. The best picture will be posted on www.buddhistinsights.com
