An open LGBTQIS community celebrating diversity.
EVERY Sunday at 7pm
Doors open at 6:15pm. No entry after 6:50pm
Please Note: Karuna Sangha is meeting in Madison Square Park on August 18th and August 25th due to renovation at NYZCCC.
Our members identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and straight. Using Buddhist principles and practices, we open our hearts to care for ourselves, for others, and for the world we all share.
We welcome practitioners of all levels and traditions. One does not need to identify as Buddhist to attend.
Everyone is warmly welcome to join our community and participate in our gatherings. Both cushions and chairs are provided.
Meditation instruction is offered by a senior practitioner. More detailed guidance is available upon request. The evening includes an hour of sitting and walking meditation, metta practice and contemplation, a half hour of Dharma Sharing, and a closing hour of social time, snacks included. We end the night by mindfully cleaning up together.
A suggested donation of $10 is encouraged.
