/ pronounced SANG-ha /
संघ a Sanskrit word meaning ‘community’
Welcome to your community.
Once a month gather with fellow meditators to meditate, share how your practice is going and discuss a topic related to meditation or Buddhism. This is your chance to develop friendships with other meditators, practice & learn wisdom together. We’ll also share news about local retreats and support each other’s events related to meditation. Together we will become .. your meditation community. Joining the Sunday Sangha also means you’ll be invited to join our Facebook group, where we’ll share news of local retreats and other meditation happenings around New York City.
Practice with other meditators.
Once a month you’ll be invited to gather with other meditators to meditate, share how your practice is going and discuss a topic related to meditation or Buddhism. Together we will become friends, supporting each other, our practice and going further down our Buddhist path. The Sunday Sangha is for you if you have a consistent or semi-consistent meditation practice. Meditations will not be guided so you can enjoy the peacefulness of your own practice.
Build lasting relationships.
When you meditate you go within. You become more authentic and more you, and it becomes easier to connect with others more deeply as our true selves. We’ll begin each Sunday Sangha with a 20 minute meditation. After this we’ll go around the room, sharing how our practice (or month) has gone. Then each month we’ll choose a different topic and enjoy a guided discussion together. Away from the stress of daily life, we’re excited for Sunday Sangha members to bond and connect, even heading out for dinner together after each gathering!

“What you will find is humor, explanations in plain English and tips to deal with stressful situations every New Yorker can relate to — like how to mindfully approach an overflowing email inbox — with nary a Buddha statue in sight. And that’s appealing to high-powered clients who steer clear of nonsense.”
"The Path is not the meditation of a Buddhist monk looking to transcend the cycle of life and death — though some of the techniques are the same. Nor is it the meditation of hippies surrounded by free love and ganja. Instead, the program aims to teach a system of mental focus meant to make successful New Yorkers even more successful.”
About The Path
The Path is meditation for the modern mind. We've hosted weekly meditations since 2014 and taught thousands of people to meditate in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, at SXSW, Sundance, Flow Japan and events around the world. We run a certificate Teacher Training Program, a certificate Mindful Leadership course and book launches for major teachers and authors including Matthieu Ricard, Robert Thurman, Shinzen Young and Culadasa.
We believe meditation can be accessible and taught in beautiful, fun environments.
