- David Chernikoff — “What is Enlightenment?”, Wednesday, September 27 from 6:30-8:45pm (ET). This program will be hybrid (in person and online).
- David began the study and practice of meditation in 1971 and started teaching insight meditation in 1988. He trained as a yoga teacher at the Integral Yoga Institute and completed the Community Dharma Leader program at Spirit Rock Meditation Center. His teaching has been influenced by senior teachers from the Insight Meditation Society and Spirit Rock, Tibetan teachers he studied with during a 3-year stay in Nepal, and spiritual guides from other contemplative traditions, most notably Ram Dass, Father Thomas Keating, Zen teacher Yvonne Rand, and Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi. David taught psychology and meditation at Naropa University for many years. Currently he has a private practice as a spiritual counselor and life coach in Boulder and teaches workshops and retreats throughout the U.S. For more information, see his website: www.davidchernikoff.com.

On most Wednesday evenings throughout the year, a CIMC or visiting teacher offers a Dharma talk. Registration is not required; this is a drop-in program. We invite attendees to offer financial support for our visiting teachers through the practice of dana (generosity). All are welcome regardless of ability to pay.
