Tuesday, September 1st

Next week is the first Tuesday of September so for our foundational series we will be exploring Impermanence (anicca) one of the three marks of existence. This is a dharma talk on the subject by Joseph Goldstein.

There are a wealth of other resources on the web and there is, of course, an endless parade of examples of impermanence in your own life for you to explore.

Please share anything that you enjoy with the group.

The schedule is:

6:00 – 6:30 sitting
6:30 – 7:15 discussion
7:15 – 7:30 sitting

The sitting takes place at BIBS – location in the sidebar.

Saturday August 15th and Tuesday, August 18th

We have two events in the next week. On Saturday, August 15th we are sitting and walking all morning: 9am to 12:30pm – alternating 30 minute periods. Come for some or all of the morning.

And then a few days later for our evening meeting, another third Tuesday comes around and we will be sitting, walking and sitting – the evening will be silent. No discussion is planned, so no reading.

The schedule is:

6:00 – 6:30 sitting
6:30 – 7:00 walking
7:00 – 7:30 sitting

We meet at BIBS – location in the sidebar.

 

Tuesday, August 11th

Next week we will get to the start of our ongoing exploration of the precepts with a discussion of the 5th precept. This pdf contains both the simple version that we chanted at our last half-day sitting and the longer Thich Nhat Hahn version that has been circulated.

There are a wealth of other resources on the web about this subject. Please share anything that you enjoy with the group.

The schedule is:

6:00 – 6:30 sitting
6:30 – 7:15 discussion
7:15 – 7:30 sitting
