We are excited to share that one of our female founders, Tay Lotte, is bringing a Modern Meditation Workshop led by Miles Bukiet to Syracuse on March 23 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. + Dinner in 123 Simms Hall. After learning from Bukiet during an Inter-Collegiate Retreat at Dai Bosatsu Zendo, Lotte decided it would be fun to bring a one day workshop to the Syracuse community.  This workshop is beginner-friendly and open to anyone and everyone in the community who is interested in developing their own meditation practice. It would be especially helpful for entrepreneurs, who are particularly prone to stress and anxiety. This workshop is free (although there is a suggested donation to Miles for his time), and is sponsored by Hendrick’s Chapel.  Space is limited, and spots are available on a first come first serve basis. If interested, sign up with this quick form.

Bukiet is a teacher of meditation and interpersonal meditation based in New York City. His practice experience includes approximately five years of full-time study of meditation and related mind-body disciplines encompassing upwards of 10,000 hours of practice. This training included two years at monasteries and practice centers in Asia, two years of solitary retreat under the guidance of Alan Wallace, Ph.D. and Roshi Joan Halifax, Ph.D, and a year studying with Soryu Forall at the Monastic Academy.

He recently completed the Master’s of Applied Positive Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania where he focused his studies on the intersection of meditation and modern science. He currently teaches at NYU through MindfulNYU and has run retreats and workshops at Wesleyan University, Upenn Medicine, Mindful Harlem, Middlebury College, Columbia Teacher’s College, Dai Bosatsu Monastery, and the Monastic Academy.

In addition to classical meditation, he has a passion for interpersonal meditation as a way to increase emotional intelligence, and build coherence and psychological safety in individuals, teams, and families. He has co-facilitated interpersonal meditation retreats with Circling Europe and has accumulated over a thousand hours of practice and teaching with this potent form. By drawing from these various rich traditions, Miles creates programing to fit the needs of unique populations.

“One thing I find most unique about Miles is his boundless heart that enables him to connect with anyone he meets,” says  Reverend Doyeon Park, Buddhist Chaplain at Columbia University.  “His words are inspiring and powerful because they come from a place of experience as he continues to research and practice meditation. I know he will never stop learning, growing and teaching.”
