About Us

"I consider the teachings of the Buddha under two headings: activity & view. Activity means refraining from harming others.  View refers to the principle of interdependence."  HH the 14th Dalai Lama


The Interdependence Project is the only multi-lineage, Secular Buddhist Center in New York City committed to personal development and collective engagement through contemplative practice.

We offer weekly classes at our loft space on the Bowery, and our unique online study program allows  people throughout the world to learn and engage with our dynamic community. 

Our teachers train in many Buddhist lineages, and offer their guidance in meditation, ethics, and mindfulness. All share a commitment to the realization of the interdependence of all beings, leading to a world of greater harmony, compassion, and wisdom.
