ABOUT MINDFUL HARLEM

Mission & Vision

“There are three possibilities in life: to be something, nothing or everything. In the first, there is suffering; in the second, there is peace; and in the third, there is happiness and peace.” – Spira

 

Mindful Harlem is a non-profit wellness and meditation center that requires no spiritual or religious affiliation to join our community. There is no preparatory practice that is necessary for the simple recognition of our individual and collective capacity to live an awakened life.

This capacity is equally available to all people, in all places, under all circumstances, and in all situations.

We are committed to bringing the practice of meditation, as well as other healing arts to the Harlem community. We believe that mindfulness, yoga, and wellness practices have the potential to lead us toward genuine authenticity and active engagement with the world around us and within us.

Collectively we come together with a deep interest in the nature of reality. Realizing that the peace, happiness, and love for which we all long cannot be satisfied by objects, activities, relationships, or substances.

We offer a safe and supportive environment where people can learn and deepen their practice together. Welcome to our community.

Mindfulness is a love affair – with life, with reality and with imagination, with the beauty of your own being, with your heart and body and mind, and with the world.

- Jon Kabat-Zinn -


Mindfulness is not a destination or an end by itself, It aligns with the truth of every moment without arguing about what is present.
