Half-Day Meditation Retreat
with Betsy Fagin & Leslie Joren Wagner
The Interdependence Project
28 West 27th Street, Suite 704 NYC
Sunday February 4, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
I’m super-excited to meet up with Joren today to talk about the sit this weekend. I couldn’t be more grateful & excited about helping guide this retreat together on Sunday.
Let me hype Joren here by sharing her bio:
Leslie Joren Wagner is an artist who has been practicing meditation for 28 years. She took Buddhist precepts in 2009, studying for 16 years in the Soto Zen tradition of Maezumi Roshi. Leslie Joren is also a certified Reiki Master Teacher and has acted as a representative to the Buddhist Council of NY, developing community education and outreach programs such as Meditate NYC and the Buddhist Forum. She received a BFA from Parsons School of Design, receiving a 2017 Hemera Tending Spaces Fellowship. She continues to explore the connection between Art and Dharma, and considers art-making a meditative practice. To that end, she creates workshops which encourage people to blossom and share their own unique wisdom in the world. Leslie Joren is a graduate of the IDP Meditation Teacher Training and is most grateful to all of her teachers.
I can’t wait to sit with this amazing woman! The Interdependence Project has additional details (including info on registration) at their site here. Facebook’s got event details too.
There’s a trailer available to view now from the Empire performance that happened last month at TOTAH. It’s still so weird to hear my own voice recorded back, but that’s me talking at the beginning and there’s a clip of Marine reading some of my work later in the video including one of my favorite lines, “I feel safer already.”
I was a bit too skittish to perform much in Empire, but I’m super-excited about part 2, Desire. I am very much looking forward to it.
But for What’s My Axis? part 2: Desire will be happening at the Fridman Gallery as part of the
New Ear Festival 2018
Wednesday February 7th at 8pm.
FRIDMAN GALLERY is located at
287 Spring St. New York City.
Tickets are available here.
