Join Kim for a weekend of meditation and community at beautiful Harriman State Park. We’ll practice lovingkindness and mindfulness meditation, with time to swim, hike, and rest, in the pristine forest and beauty of Breakneck Pond, just an hour away from NYC. Space is limited to 13 participants. Registration ends April 30. Details and registration at this link.
Whether you’re a beginner, a dabbler, or a skilled meditator seeking the company of others, join Kim at this forty-five-minute program. Each session is inspired by a different work of art from the Rubin Museum’s collection. Designed to fit into your lunch break, the program includes an opening talk, a twenty-minute sitting session, and a closing discussion. Chairs will be provided.

As part of the Sharon Salzberg’s 2019 Challenge, she is offering weekly virtual sittings for additional support for your practice! Each week is led by a different meditation teacher, and live streamed for all to join in virtually. These gatherings are a chance for you to ask questions about your practice the previous week, and hear what your fellow participants are experiencing as well. Kim is leading Week 2 at this link.
