Light and Darkness, Dream and Color: Buddhist Investigations into Mind and Appearance


with John Rockwell
March 28 / 7:30 PM - March 28 / 9:30 PM

Every morning we wake up to the sun and work in the full light of day.  Every night we fall asleep and lay still in darkness.  And then we may dream vividly and act in inconceivable ways.  What is our intimate relationship to light, darkness, and the rainbow of color?  What is the nature of our mysterious and luminous heart-mind?  This evening will be an experiential exploration of light, darkness, and color.  We will use these experiences to reflect on Buddhist teachings on the nature of mind, dream, and appearance.


All are welcome.
