What we're about

This group is open to anyone interested in learning about and practicing mindful awareness meditation. Each meeting includes some basic instructions and guided meditation. This approach, based on the accessible teachings in The Joy of Living: Unlocking the Secret and Science of Happiness, by Mingyur Rinpoche (http://tergar.org/), focuses on using our daily lives and the challenges we face as fertile ground for cultivating a peaceful mind and open heart. Mindful awareness meditation draws on the wisdom of ancient meditation traditions as well as neuroscience to train the mind to be calm, focused, attentive, flexible, and efficient. We meet on Thursday evenings from 7-8:15 p.m. at Graymoor Spiritual Life Center (https://www.atonementfriars.org/our_missions_and_ministries/graymoor_spiritual_life_center.html) in the 4th floor Kennedy room; in Garrison, NY. These meetings are freely offered; donations of 15.00 are welcome and used to cover expenses.

Graymoor can be tricky to find the first time, because the address isn't that compatible with GPS. The best address for the GPS is 40 Franciscan Way, Garrison, NY, but here is a link to Graymoor on the map. Graymoor is on Route 9, and the entrance has a large statue which is easily seen from Route 9, that's where you turn in to the campus and the spiritual life center is all the way at the top of the hill--follow the signs to the gift shop. We meet on the 4th floor, in the Kennedy Room, right across from the elevators.
