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.

​10 Ways to a Better Buddhist Life
The Dasadhamma Sutta

All that is mine, beloved and pleasing, will become otherwise, will become separated from me. This should be reflected upon again and again by one who has gone forth.

Thich Nhat Hanh says “It is not impermanence that makes us suffer. What makes us suffer is wanting things to be permanent when they are not.”

The dharma points to the fact that the whole universe from top to bottom, in all its grandeur, in all its immensity, is one vast congeries (jumble) of processes of different types, taking place at different levels – and all interrelated. Nothing ever stands still, not even for a fraction of a second. We do not see this though. When we look up we see the everlasting hills. Houses stand from generation to generation. Even our own bodies seem much the same from one year to the next. It is only when the increments of change add up to something notable, when a house is burnt down, or when we ourselves take to our deathbed, that we realize the truth of impermanence, that all conditioned things – from the minutest particles to the most massive stars – begin, continue, and then cease.” (Triratna Dharma Training Yr. 1)

This week we’ll explore impermanence and reflections upon impermanence. Join us for discussions and more.

All are welcome!
