May 15 - 17 20151. Only a short train ride from NYC, for a few days of mindfulness, yoga, workshops and delicious food. 
External mindfulness is a fully relational meditation practice based on the traditions of Insight Meditation; it develops a relational or interpersonal approach to the Dharma. Designed for all ages, this retreat combines silent Vipassana with external mindfulness, along with dharma talks and interviews with the teachers. 

The retreat starts with basic foundational practice, developing concentration and awareness in silent meditation. During mindful meditation practice, the mind is invited to stillness over and over again through reining in the discursive mind. We then bring meditation to interactive dialogue, allowing the experience of mindfulness to flourish in interactions with others.

Trippy Infinite Space Meditation w/ background ambient music

November 24th, 2014

The goal of this meditation is to cultivate a non-dual awareness, undermining the perception of 'inside' and 'outside.' Such meditations can be quite trippy and pleasurable for most, though it can be a bit disorienting, so leave time afterwards to return to a mundane state of mind.

This meditation was recorded at our Dharmapunx NYC 2014 autumn retreat on saturday august 22nd. The hall created a great deal of reverberation and resonant sounds, and the smart phone recording my voice wasn't close enough, so I've masked some of the audio defects with ambient music I created in garageband. The voice at times can drop to a level that's difficult to discern. 

Metta, josh
