MY NAME IS: Dina Kaplan.
I'M KNOWN FOR BEING:
Founder of The Path.
I'M HELPING TO LAUNCH:
A mainstream, modern movement behind meditation. We know how to work out our bodies; isn't it time to condition our minds too? At The Path, we host weekly Tuesday evening meditations at The Standard, East Village in New York City, and we just launched a summer retreat this June in Montauk. We can't wait for that!
YOU CAN FIND IT AT:
The Standard, East Village, Tuesday evenings, 7pm. Come join us! You can reserve a cushion. We also host social events each month, which you can find on via our newsletter or site, and teacher training and retreats. Such good things!
WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL IS:
We bring together start-up founders and CEOs, people in film, fashion, publishing and more. We’re a modern community interested in meditation because we want to become the best possible version of ourselves.
ONE THING YOU CAN'T MISS IS:
Each month, we bring our community together for a social event. It may be a big speaker or a Tibetan Bowl meditation or a dinner party on a meditation-related theme. We make meditation fun and modern and social, and encourage practices that are easy to start or maintain. Come join our next one!
YOUR BODY WILL THANK YOU BECAUSE:
When you meditate, you reduce the production of cortisol (the stress hormone) in your body and increase production of the relaxation response. So you feel better when you meditate, and you make your body healthier too.
