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.
Wednesday Sangha Night On Zoom
6:45pm – 8:30pm
The Journey and the Guide
A practical course in enlightenment
This Wednesday we continue onto week 4, The Mandala of Positive Emotion, in our series “The Journey and the Guide”.
Where does happiness come from? The Buddha taught that happiness comes from positive emotion, or kusala karma, which means skillful or beneficial activity. Here we may pause and ask ourselves if we really believe that and if we do, do our actions fall in line with this?
The threefold path of ethics, meditation, and wisdom give us a clear way to see how we can experience this in our lives. Maitryabandhu says “ How we behave (ethics) changes our state of mind. Once our mind is healthier and more uplifted, we can enter into concentrated, enriched, and flexible states of mind (meditation). With this purified and focused mind we can turn towards the way tings really are (wisdom). “
Join us this week as we further explore kusala karma in practical “life training”. What can we focus on and practice, in real life terms, to help bring our actions more and more in line with our values and highest aspirations. Now is the time to turn theory and good ideas into lived out experience.
Join us this week for meditation, discussion and community!
All are welcome!
