Deep Sit: Open Level

What is a Deep Sit?
Whether you are a new or seasoned meditator, Deep Sit half-day retreats are an excellent way to deepen your meditation practice. They are also a great opportunity to explore retreat practice for the first time.

The day is structured so that if you are new you have lots of support and plenty of time to ask questions. And if you are an experienced meditator, you have time for continuous practice, to dive deep.

The atmosphere is welcoming and fun and we gather together after the retreat to eat and hang and talk about our experiences.

This retreat will be led by Janusz Welin, co-founder of the Deep Mindfulness Collective.

 "The community aspect of these retreats is more important than I thought it would be. The fact that we're sharing a common experience is really powerful... I couldn't do this on my own." -  Dustina

 "Going on retreats has given me a different template on how to approach my meditation… Meditation has helped me hone in on my vision and creativity. Honestly, I’d be lost without it." -  Will

What will the schedule be like?
The day will begin with conversation and instruction on meditation practice, move into alternating periods of sitting and moving meditation, and end with a group process for sharing experiences that arise throughout the day.

And we'll go out to eat and hang together at a local spot after the retreat!

The cost for this retreat is $90 - $130. We have full and partial scholarships available for those who identify as POC and/or LGBTQI, and social justice organizers. Paying above the minimum enables us to offer scholarships to those who would otherwise be unable to attend, and enables us to continue this offering. If this amount is beyond your means, please contact Rakhel at rakhel@deepmindfulness.io. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Mindful Connection: Interdependence and Transcendence

Mindful Connection: Interdependence and Transcendence

We need each other if we want to experience fulfillment, to pursue paths of deep transformation and awakening. But in our complex lives, we often trade happiness for success and forget our deeper goals. When we’re stressed, our survival strategies kick in and we can forget how essential and healthy relationships — and the mindfulness that supports them — are to happiness and freedom.

A key to successful relationships can be found in our attachment strategies. 
We all have internal working models — beliefs and expectations about ourselves, others, and our place in the world. These inform all our relationships: with ourselves, lovers, partners, collaborators, friends, those we seek guidance from. Skills and beliefs we learned as children shape us throughout our lives and across our relationships in subtle and often unconscious ways.

How can mindfulness help us see and shift these internal working models so we can move towards deeper fulfillment and greater connection? And how can a path of classical awakening be used to move towards a fulfilling life?

In this program, we will explore mindfulness strategies to identify and transform our relational selves, and move towards deeper fulfillment. This space will also provide the opportunity to connect with others interested in personal, interpersonal, and social transformation.

Come early to experience the powerful and improvisational sounds of violinist Matorin. As his melodies move you, let an elixir from the NYMPHAEA Botanical Bar ignite your senses. Starts at 5 PM.

Janusz + Rakhel at New York Insight: Buddha and Bill W.

  • New York Insight Meditation Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

2500 years ago the Buddha said craving and attachment is the cause of suffering. In the 1930’s Bill Wilson started the first Twelve-Step program that worked with a deep form of craving and suffering: addictions. In these monthly meetings, we explore the ways that Buddhism and the Steps support and complement each other and can deepen our spiritual lives. The meetings include Buddhist meditation practices, interactive exercises, dharma talks and discussion.

The evenings are open to all who are interested. You need not be in a Twelve Step program nor have a background in Buddhism.

Fee by donation: Suggested starting donation is $15 but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds. For this event all donations are split evenly between the teacher(s) and NYI.
