The schedule is:

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

Tuesday, May 9th

We are going to work on Right Speech for another week, by the end of which we should be talking pretty…

Here are a few suggestions for how to investigate how, when and why you say the things you do:

Notice what is happening in your body as you speak.

Focus on how you feel emotionally when you speak.

Pay attention to what motivates you to speak. Why do you say what you do?

Be mindful of what you are paying attention to when you speak.  Are you focused on your words? Do you pay attention to the people you’re talking to? How aware of your body are you as you speak?

Keep your attention anchored in your body as you speak. Notice how this affects what you say.

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, April 25th

Next Tuesday we will be bringing our wander down A Path With Heart to an end with the final three chapters.

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.
