Greetings from Wake Up NYC! You are all warmly invited to the first Wake Up Open House this Saturday, December 1st, to be held at our awesome home base, Atmananda Yoga Studio. It's been almost a year since we began practicing together at Atmananda, and we are so happy to finally have this opportunity to share our lovely haven with all NYC sanghas, friends, and family! To make the day very special, three of our NYC Dharma teachers- Marjorie Markus, Dennis Bohn, and David Flint- will be offering a panel style dharma talk.
Here's the schedule:
2:00-2:30 Sit together
2:30-3:45 Dharma talk/ Q&A with Marjorie, Dennis, and David
3:45-4:45 Wake Up-style hang with tea and snacks
5:00-6:30 Free Yoga class (optional)- donations welcome
7:00-8:30 Vegan Potluck
8:30-10:30 More togetherness... maybe an impromptu tea ceremony... the space is ours to inhabit joyfully!
Feel free to join us anytime during the day to check out the space, meditate, grab a bite to eat, hear a dharma talk, do some yoga, or just to say hi and visit for a bit! Stay as long or short as you wish.
Throughout the day we'll be collecting gifts of support for Atmananda to help sustain the high costs of maintaining this space in Manhattan. If it brings you joy, we hope you can share your financial support of any amount. We will offer this gift for the continued well being of our practice center, which has provided invaluable support for our growing young adult sangha.

Hope to see you this weekend!
