Four of featured talks are by friends of RMS:

There are other terrific speakers on a host of other topics as well.


Situated in the extraordinary setting of Governors Island, Meditation Summer offers an easy-going, casual atmosphere that is open to the public, free-of-charge. Participants do not need any special interest in meditation to learn about or experience this unique summer festival. A broad range of meditation approaches and techniques are included in the program.
