The Interdependence Project
302 Bowery Middle BuzzerNew York, NY 10003
Mon, 12/17/2012, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Curious about meditation and Buddhist practices, philosophy, and psychology? Join us for an introduction to mindfulness practice and ways to work with your thoughts and heart. We'll discuss common misconceptions about meditation, and what it really means to practice in the Buddhist tradition.
This is a drop-in event, and pre-registration is not necessary. We're offering it on a donation basis, and request each participant to contribute between $5 - $10 to support this and other initiatives led by The Interdependence Project.
Kimberly Brown is both a student and a teacher at The Interdependence Project. She's a graduate of the first year-long IDP Training Immersion Program, is a Tibetan Buddhist, trains with Sokuzan Bob Brown, and practices Kriya Yoga with Alan Finger. Kimberly has degrees in physics and literature, and spent several years in post-graduate training as a psychodynamic psychotherapist. She teaches dharma classes and meditation at IDP and privately, and is filled with tremendous gratitude for The Interdependence Project community and its founder, Ethan Nichtern.
A lifelong dancer and a yogi for many years, Kate Johnson finally learned to sit still at The Interdependence Project, where she completed teacher training in December 2011. A student in the Insight (Vipassana) meditation tradition, she will complete the Mindfulness Yoga and Meditation teacher training at Spirit Rock Meditation Center this year. Kate teaches yoga and mindfulness meditation to high school students in public schools throughout NYC, and is a co-owner of Third Root Community Health Center (www.thirdroot.org), a radically accessible holistic health care cooperative in Brooklyn, NY.
