Meditation Retreat at New York Society for Ethical Culture on Nov 3-4, 2017
Contributed by Vegan Aharonian
In the age of virtual communication and instant response, it feels that people have less and less time to listen to each other and have a deeper conversation. We consume an unthinkable number of snippets of information and are expected to react in a split of a second. As the organizers of this New York Retreat focused on the art of conversation note, “we are often communicating in sound bites and photo captions that do not create a sense of real connection with the people we care about. In fact, some feel we have lost the art of communication”. Sakyong Mipham will join the hosts and other special guests for this weekend-long retreat.
Sakyong Mipham, who just published his new book “The Lost Art of Good Conversation”, shows a way to do better. He is the head of the Shambhala lineage and the global network of more than 200 Shambhala Meditation Centers. With a unique blend of Eastern and Western perspectives, his teachings focus on living a courageous life based on wisdom, kindness, and compassion. He also holds the Kagyü and Nyingma lineages of Tibetan Buddhism.
Sakyong Mipham is the author of such bestsellers as “Turning the Mind Into an Ally” (2004), “Ruling Your World” (2006), and “Running with a Mind of Meditation” (2013) among many others. He is a husband, father of three daughters, and an avid runner.
The retreat at the New York Ethical Society is organized by NY Shambhala Meditation Center. In addition to the retreats NY Shamhala Center also hosts hourly Learn to Meditate program and other events.
