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.

 

Tuesday, November 14th

We were looking around for a discussion topic for next week and not finding anything that leapt out at us and then I looked at the audiodharma podcast feed and saw a talk by Andrea Fella titled  Cultivating Happiness. I imagine that we can all support that activity so let’s listen to that and see what we find…

 We meet at BIBS and the schedule is:

6:00 – 6:30 sitting

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.
