6:45 pm - 8:00 pm
We decided to continue not having in person meditation and study group sessions on Wednesday evening.
Instead we will be meeting online. Join us by clicking on this Zoom link on Wednesday evenings, 6:45-8:00pm . 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.
Join us to explore….this Wednesday…!
Eight Verses For Training the Mind
This week we continue on in our series on the Eight Verses for Training the Mind. As we go through these verses we can see that the training becomes more and more challenging. In the last few weeks we have been with ill natured people, envious folks who have done us harm and now we are confronted with betrayal.
Even if someone whom I have helped
And in whom I have placed my hopes
Does great wrong by harming me,
May I see them as an excellent spiritual friend.
Can we deepen our practice in a way that allows for an open heart that does not wish to retaliate? Here we are asked to practice patience. What an excellent spiritual friend to be pointing out where we can practice patience! Can we view people who have harmed us in this way with kindly eyes and wish them well?
Join us this week to discuss and deepen practice.
All are welcome as we continue to deepen our study and engagement with these ancient teachings.
