Creating a Life of Integrity: Our Path to Joy
A Virtual Event With Joseph Goldstein and Gail Stark


In a world turned upside down, where do we find our compass? For a year, Gail Stark, guided by Joseph Goldstein, practiced intensely–and joyously!–with the 10 paramis, the qualities of a Buddha. It was a transformative year and Gail’s new book, Creating a Life of Integrity: In Conversation with Joseph Goldstein, will be the map to her upcoming course offered by New York Insight Meditation Center. This course will be a rich and powerful experience, one that continues to blossom for years to come. As we strengthen and weave the paramis into our daily lives they become our trusted first response in a world that needs our integrity now.

Join Tricycle for the course kick-off event, a conversation between Joseph and Gail, moderated by Amy Gross, on Saturday, September 12, 1 p.m. EDT. This special 75-minute Zoom event is free and will include a live audience Q&A.
