Tuesday, August 30th

Next Tuesday we will continue our wander down A Path With Heart with:

Chapter 3: Take the One Seat
Chapter 4: Necessary Healing

We invite each of you who plan to be there next Tuesday, to bring in an insight and a question from the readings… you can certainly bring more… and it is more engaging if we all lead the discussion.

The schedule is:

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

The sitting takes place at BIBS.

Tuesday, August 16th

The sandstorm of impermanence has swept another month onto the ocean of the past and so another third Tuesday comes around.

Next Tuesday we will be sitting, walking and sitting – the evening will be silent. No discussion is planned, no reading required.

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 9th

We will be talking about this talk by Joseph Goldstein on No Self.

He calls it a collage and rather than giving a traditionally structured dharma talk, he talks about how he came to realise some of the teachings – the times when the teachings went from boring, academic instructions to something he felt in his bones. I found it to be an interesting window into how an experienced practitioner works with the teachings.

Joseph Goldstein is one of the first wave of western dharma teachers. He helped found IMS with Jack Kornfield and Sharon Salzberg et al.

The schedule is:

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

We meet at BIBS.
