Tuesday, October 27th

Next Tuesday we will be continuing our voyage through Tara Brach’s book True Refuge with a discussion of chapters 5 and 6. The chapters are “RAIN: Cultivating Mindfulness in Difficult Times”, and “Awakening to the Life of the Body”.

We had good discussion and participation for the earlier chapters, so I hope many of you will be there for these next chapters, even if you’re not reading the book.

The schedule is:

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

The sitting takes place at BIBS.

Saturday October 10th and Tuesday, October 13th

We have two events in the next week. On Saturday, October 10th we will be spending a few hours sitting and walking, from 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, we will be extending our exploration of the Third Mark of Existence – Anatta (non-self). Kathleen will be sharing her insights from the retreat she recently sat at IRC with Gil during which he taught Emptiness and No-Self. The talks from the retreat are not yet online but this is a talk that Gil gave at IMC on the morning just before the retreat started, and Piṇḍapātapārisuddhi and Suñña are suttas that Gil refers to in his talk.

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
