October 9th, Book Club: The Grace in Aging, 4:30 to 6pm in the Dharma Gate Library
The first meeting on The Grace in Aging: Awaken As You Grow Older was held on July 17th with several folks participating and some deep sharing about our feelings as we move through the 6th and 7th decades of our lives. On October 9th, we will be discussing the Chapters on “Forgiveness” and “Humility”, pages 151-186 and Jack Baker will facilitate.
Join us for a day of reflection upon what it means to do everything with a mind that lets go. Together we will stop and look deeply at the practice of letting go as a way to experience deep happiness and peace. Our teacher Thich Nhat Hanh suggests, “Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything — anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.” Register today, space is limited.
Beginning September 25th the practice committee is honored to host Serena Maurer and Jabali Stewart as guest speakers for our series on engaged Buddhism and Social Justice within our practice, based on the 5 Mindfulness Trainings of Thich Nhat Hanh. Beginning on Monday,… Read more ›
