Tuesday, October 31st

Tuesday is Halloween and we thought that it would be an appropriate evening to discuss one of the six realms of existence, the realm of the the Hungry Ghost.  Hungry ghosts are pitiable creatures with huge, empty stomachs. They have pinhole mouths, and their necks are so thin they cannot swallow, so they remain hungry. Beings are reborn as hungry ghosts because of their greed, envy and jealousy. Hungry ghosts are also associated with addiction, obsession, and compulsion..

Here is a treat of a Gil dharma talk as a starting place.

And, if you would like to bring other treats to share with the sangha, please do!
The schedule is:

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

We meet at BIBS – location in the sidebar.

Tuesday, October 24th

Next Tuesday we will continue our discussion of The Five Invitations covering Chapters 3 & 4 of the First Invitation. There is also a website associated with the book.

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 in more, but we thought it might be 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.
