Great open house meditation class and Buddhism lecture that happens weekly at the Shambhala center. We will start with a period of guided meditation by Ethan, during which there will be guided practice, so beginners are welcome.
At the same time, this night is designed for those with an existing practice and study who have serious questions about the dharma, maybe even questions you haven't felt clear enough or comfortable enough to ask. Or maybe you have questions you've been asking a long time, and haven't gotten a satisfactory answer.

After meditation, Ethan will give a very short talk about practicing mindfulness and compassion in every aspect of life, Including Family, Career, School, and relationships. The talk will be shorter than normal to allow anyone to ask any question they want about Buddhist practice in 2014. No question is off-limits, as long as it is a heartfelt one. It should be a great night.
This talk should be added to the Shambhala NYC podcast a few months after the live event.
