DharmapunxNYC and IBMe.org are teaming up together for a special retreat at the Garrison Institute. 

The retreat starts with basic foundational practice, developing concentration and awareness in silent meditation. During mindful meditation practice, the mind is invited to stillness over and over again through reining in the discursive mind. We then bring meditation to interactive dialogue, allowing the experience of mindfulness to flourish in interactions with others. 

In the evening, we will engage in dialogue, investigating the ways we interact with one another, while using Buddhist practice and the precepts as our guide.  We share an open space where honest, interactive awareness and experience can be developed in a caring safe environment.
