Welcome

In the context of the COVID-19 crisis unfolding, our teachers have moved their offerings to on-line formats to continue to provide important support through these challenging times. 

We also have a monthly MBSR Alumni Sit now offered via Zoom, and we will be starting daily Facebook Live guided meditations from March 30th onwards. A number of other resources are listed below, many of them free or donation based.


Mindfulness Meditation NYC is a collaborative of Mindfulness Based-Stress Reduction (MBSR) teachers offering classes in the NYC area.  You can learn more about us by reading about our Membership and our Mission StatementClick on the side-bar to learn more about our teachers, their credentials and experience.
