‘Mindfulness discussion at NYU’


The NYU Center for Spiritual Life is doing it again. On Sunday, November 2, it will host another panel discussion on mindfulness in different faith traditions. The center is located at 238 Thompson Street, and the discussion will be hosted in Grand Hall on the fifth floor from 1:30 to 4 p.m. From the publicity:

Mindfulness and meditation have historically played a role in nearly every major religious tradition, and yet it is only in recent times that many of these traditions are reclaiming those practices, educating their communities, and incorporating them into their spiritual lives. What are the meditation practices in Judaism, Islam, and Buddhism? How do they differ in each tradition, and how are they similar? Why is a renaissance of these practices important now? Internationally renowned spiritual teachers from each tradition will engage us in this conversation, followed by a Q&A.

Featuring Rabbi David Ingber (Judaism), Sarah Sayeed (Islam), and Ven Pannavati Bhikkuni (Buddhism). Moderated by Yael Shy, Co-Director of NYU’s Of Many Institute for Multifaith Leadership.

Co-sponsored by the Of Many Institute, the Mindfulness Project at NYU, and others.
