6:45 pm - 8:30 pm
Please join us online by Zoom, Wednesday evenings, 6:45-8:30pm. We value Sangha (spiritual community) and the opportunity to be together. We will use this time for lightly guided meditation, a short check in to see how we can support one another, and exploration of a Buddhist topic. The facilitator will offer brief remarks and guide discussion as a way to focus our practice on that week’s theme. Themes may run several weeks, but each week can serve as a stand-alone session. We look forward to seeing you and sharing our love and kindness for the wellness of all beings.
This week we begin a two part series on ‘Aging as a Spiritual Practice,’ based on the book by Lewis Richmond.
Perhaps you are too young, or in denial, to consider aging as a topic of interest, although this is not about how many years you have. If you are aware of any diminishment in your capabilities, or energies, due to accident or disease, or have a friend, relative or pet that is experiencing aging in some form, this session may be of worth to you.
How do you work with the inevitable changes that occur in a life well lived?
We will explore the stages of aging that leads to appreciating what we have, then to Elderhood where we now can be of service to others. We will also look at the Five Great Fears and see what the Buddha and science has to offer about aging.
A multitude of studies shows generally, people over 50 tend to be more happy, and that all of us, with regular practices, can continue to cultivate flexibility and gratitude, deepening our contentment and sensitivity to life regardless of circumstances.
Following familiar Buddhist themes and reflections well suited for this process, we may find relief from the Loss and Gain of life by listening to the body and the gentle voice of Buddha.
All are welcome!
