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…!
All are welcome!
Life With Full Attention
This week we continue exploring Maitreyabandhu’s book, Life with Full Attention, by looking at the chapter on other people.
As we continue to cultivate a foundation of mindfulness practice of body, feeling tone, thought processes, and application of Buddhist teachings to our experiences, we then expand outward to include the beauty of the natural world, the Arts and, this week, Other People.
We all have ‘other people’ in our worlds. Where else can we find so many opportunities for correcting their mistakes, placing blame and attaching our resentments and frustrations ??
Reminder: We are ‘other people’ to others.
‘Other’ people are also ‘our’ family and friends, those that we have a deeper commitment to and interest in.
Do we see other people as objects of indifference? Are our relationships with others conditional?
Can we attempt to look at others as having the same general needs and concerns that we hold; for safety, comfort and connection?
Can we try to see the ‘other’s’ view or beliefs and make an effort to relate not compare?
As we attempt to take in the whole person, shifting from us vs them to a we perspective where we relate to their humanity, our worlds can become a more forgiving, tolerant space to abide in.
Please join us as we explore Other People.
