The first week of December

On Saturday we will be having our monthly half-day of sitting and walking from 9:00 to 12:30 – alternating periods of 30 minutes. You are welcome to attend as much of the morning as you are able.
Next Tuesday we will be discussing one of Gil’s recent talks. I listened to this talk a couple of weeks ago and thought it would make a great topic for the first Tuesday discussion and then at the end of tonight’s sitting someone else suggested the very same talk, so here you are… How Do We Change Through Buddhist Practice.

The schedule for the evening is:

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

We meet at BIBS – location in the sidebar.

The week of April 1st

We have three events in the next week. On Saturday, 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 Tuesday evening meeting, we will continue our first of the month Back to Basics series with a look at the second factor of the Eightfold Path, Right Intention. Here is a link to a talk by Gil, and there are more talks related to the subject here. There are also two (pdf) study guides here and here.

The schedule is:

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

On Friday, April 7, from 9am to 4pm there is a full day of sitting and walking meditation with the same format of alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation as the Saturday half-day sittings. The day will also include periods of guided meditation and opportunities for private practice discussions for those interested.

We meet at BIBS – location in the sidebar.
