About the Event
Remaining calm and in a state of equanimity, yet vibrant and engaged in the face of life’s constantly changing nature is one of the ongoing challenges faced by all of us.  To survive the roller coaster ride of life requires a substantial depth of patience, yet it so often feels as if patience is in short supply.

Join author Allan Lokos as he sheds new light on this much sought-after state of being, provides a road map for cultivating more patience in one's life through readings and an informal dialog about his new book Patience: The Art of Peaceful Living (Tarcher/Penguin).

Having begun his study and practice of meditation with Thây Thich Nhat Hanh, Allan's  teachers have included Joseph Goldstein, Larry Rosenberg, Andrew Olendzki, Stephen Batchelor, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, Tsoknyi Rinpoche and Sharon Salzberg.

Allan Lokos is the guiding teacher of the Community Meditation Center on New York City’s upper west side and has taught at Columbia University Teacher's College, Marymount College, NY Insight, and Insight Meditation Community of Washington.

He is the author of Pocket Peace: Effective Practices for Enlightened Living (Tarcher/Penguin; Winter, 2010) &  Patience: The Art of Peaceful Living (Tarcher/Penguin; Jan, 2012).
