New York Insight – People Who Care for People – Talk with Holistic Life Foundation

March 9, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0

New York Insight Meditation Center

New York Insight welcomes Sharon Salzberg and brothers Ali and Atman Smith and their friend and colleague, Andres Gonzalez, of the Holistic Life Foundation. They 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 in Baltimore and the ways in which this work can impact whole communities.

This event is co-sponsored by Garrison Institute who will be hosting the People Who Care for People Retreat from Friday, March 10- Sunday, March 12. Click here for more information or to register for the retreat.
