6:45 pm - 8:00 pm
Nagaloka Buddhist Center
Due to the COVID-19 Nagaloka is closed to the public. We decided best not to have any in person meditation or study group sessions on Wednesday evening or Sunday AM.
Instead we will be meeting online by Zoom at 6:45 pm to 8 pm if you would to join us. We value Sangha (spiritual community) and feel it is important for us to have the opportunity to be together. We will use this time to meditation along with a short check in to see how we can best support one another. Plus the facilitator will continue on our Dharma theme offering everyone a focus for our practice. We look forward to seeing you and sharing our love and kindness for the wellness of all beings.
All are welcome for Friendship February
We continue our theme of Friendship February. The evening will start with a guided meditation focused on mindfulness-of-breathing. Next, two Nagaloka Mitras will share their perspectives on spiritual friendship. Nancy will describe how her understanding of — and reaction to — ‘spiritual friendship’ has changed over time. Janet will share how spiritual friendship changes lives and how it can differ from regular friendships. This will be followed by open discussion prompted by questions such as …
— What role does spiritual friendship play in your participation with Nagaloka and the Buddhist path?
— Is your participation motivated primarily by the spiritual friendship offered by the sangha? Dharma study? Attraction to the qualities of the Buddha? The benefits of meditation? A mix of the above?
Each Wednesday this month we will explore “What is Spiritual Friendship?”. Why is this so important to our Dharma practice? How is it different from other friendships we have experienced in our life? What did the Buddha have to say about friendship? Are we connecting with others in a way that helps us to grow and develop towards awakening, as well as supporting others in their growth and development?
