All are welcome — this group is for those who are curious to learn more about meditation, for both beginners and practicing Buddhists. A sangha is a community of people who come together to meditate and study the practice of Buddhism.
When: Our sangha meets monthly, generally 1:30-3:00 p.m. on the first Sunday of the month (though we meet on the second Sunday of the month on occasion due to holiday weekends). We do not sit on the floor; we sit in chairs.
Where: 1157 Lexington Avenue, between 79th and 80th Street, NYC.
Our teacher: Dr. Pilar Jennings is a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst who focuses on the clinical applications of Buddhist meditation practice. She completed a doctorate in the Psychiatry and Religion Program at Union Theological Seminary. Dr. Jennings is also the author of Mixing Minds: The Power of Relationship in Psychoanalysis and Buddhism (2010) and To Heal a Wounded Heart: The Transformative Power of Buddhism and Psychotherapy in Action.
