JCC Talk with Holistic Life Foundation

March 3, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0

| $20

Holistic Life FoundationMeditation and Inner-City Youth

The JCC Manhattan welcomes back brothers Ali and Atman Smith and their friend and colleague, Andres Gonzalez, who know what it takes not only to survive, but also to thrive under difficult and challenging circumstances. By teaching yoga and meditation to inner-city youth in Baltimore and other troubled communities around the country and the world, they’re helping a new generation cope with the stress and suffering they face on a daily basis. Renowned meditation teacher and best-selling author Sharon Salzberg will moderate the conversation with Ali, Atman, and Andy, sharing stories, insights, and wisdom pertinent to those who teach or care for young people living in challenging environments. They will also talk about the recent unrest and the ways in which this work can impact whole communities.

This evening is part of the “Garrison Talks at the JCC” and is cosponsored with the Garrison Institute.
