Get Involved with Compassion NYC for a Better NYC

There are many ways you can get involved in making New York a more compassionate, caring community. We’re about more than ‘volunteering.’  We’re about bringing Buddhist ethics of kindness and compassion to every moment, every action.  So, whether you’d like to join us serving food in a soup kitchen, at a protest for social justice, or even participating in one of our annual events, there’s something for you.  Below are just some of the ways you can be a part of bringing more compassion to NYC:


Sutta Study Group Now Forming

It is said that the gift of the Dharma is the highest gift of all.  But Buddhism is more than just sitting in meditation.  The Buddha offered spiritual advice on all aspects of our lives, both practical and spiritual.  These teachings can help bring us ever closer to our goal of personal and social liberation.  Join in the learning and start experiencing everyday awakening in this very life!  Classes available on a drop-in basis at various locations in NYC.  1st and 3rd Monday of each month, from 6.30-8.30 pm.  Join us!
