Cambridge Insight Meditation Center to hold 80th birthday bash for Larry Rosenberg

On December 15, Larry Rosenberg, one of the founding teachers of Cambridge Insight Meditation Center, will turn 80. The Center will hold a celebration, and all are welcome to attend. Here’s CIMC executive director Maddy Klyne’s invitation:

“As you may know, Larry is one of the founding teachers at CIMC. Twenty-seven years ago, he envisioned an urban dharma center where the teachings of the Buddha could be offered to all. Through Larry’s tireless devotion, his generous spirit, and with the help of others, CIMC has become a refuge in this busy world, and the teachings have helped alleviate the suffering of thousands of yogis over the years.

It is a perfect time to honor him and show appreciation for everything he has done to make CIMC what it is today So, on Saturday December 15, from 2-5 PM we will gather to celebrate Larry. There will be time for reflections and cake, and we’ll welcome a special guest at the event, Jon Kabat-Zinn.

At this celebration, there will be an opportunity for each of us to write a short note to Larry and also to make a heartfelt gift in any amount to CIMC’s Endowment campaign. As many of you know, we have begun to build an Endowment fund for CIMC as a way of helping to care for the teachers, for the Center, and to continue to offer dharma teachings to future generations of yogis. Larry’s birthday offers a wonderful chance to give a gift that honors his vision and contributes to the sustenance of that vision.

“Please join us to celebrate Larry’s life of teaching and generosity to all of us!”
