Intro to OM
WHAT – Intro to OM Workshop
WHEN – Saturday 8 August
Orgasmic Meditation (OM) is a wellness practice (like yoga and pilates) that is designed for singles and couples to experience more connection, vitality, pleasure, and meaning in every aspect of their lives.
People OM because they want to feel more connected, more flow, more vitality, more… everything. The practice is simple, specific, and repeatable, focusing on the clit, the female center of power and pleasure. Every OM is set up the same way so participants can stop thinking, and instead follow the feeling, listen to their bodies, and be present.
The day-long Intro to OM Course is the perfect way to learn the basics of the practice of OM and the philosophy behind OneTaste’s signature practice. Spend the day with two Certified OneTaste instructors.

WHAT – Brooklyn Grange Flagship Farm Open House Tour
WHEN – Wednesday 2 Sept - BOOK NOW
September is the month of epic harvests. We spend the summer counting the days until our favorite crops are in season: from crisp, flavorful greens to super-sweet, vine-ripened tomatoes, pungent peppers, tangy ground cherries, creamy eggplant, fragrant basils the list goes on.
When the food is this fresh and the harvest this diverse, who needs meat!? Not us, nor any of the five amazing chefs we've enlisted, each of whom will put their unique spin on our rooftop crops.
Dinner will start with a cocktail hour during which guests can sip on a summery garden-to-glass cocktail and snack on pickled veggies while watching the sun set over our stunning Manhattan skyline view. We'll then move on to a family-style, four-course dinner served down the length of a gorgeous banquet table.
In the spirit of the diversity of September's harvest, and as a nod to an old family tradition, we ask that everyone bring their own plate! Harvest is all about sharing with community and your plates will add color and a bit of your personality to our table, so dig deep into those cabinets and grab your favorite dish.

Buddha Within You - Exhibition
WHAT – Buddha Within You - An Exploration of The Mind Within
WHEN – On Now
Tibet House US presents BUDDHA WITHIN YOU: An Exploration of the Mind Within featuring Tibetan artist and tangka painter Ngawang Jorden. In this exhibit, Mr. Jorden explores four main themes: man's universe and mental patterns, traditional Tibetan symbolism, political imagery, and the relationship of humans with nature and technology. He employs a meticulous classical technique, influenced by traditional Tibetan Buddhist art themes and fused with organic and natural forms.
Ngawang Jorden was born to a Mompa mother in Tawang, birthplace of the sixth Dalai Lama. He attended the Sera Monastery and currently lives in Boston. As a Tibetan political activist and community organizer, Jorden interprets current and historic socio-political events and human behavior in combination with ideas from his life as a shepherd, monk, a stupa builder and carpenter. Through his artwork, Jorden tells the story of humans trapped in samsara, repeating the same actions under different circumstances at different points in time.
