Dharma Gathering/Open House


with Christine Labich
July 7 / 10:00 AM - July 7 / 1:00 PM

Join us at 10am with an introduction to Shambhala, meditation instruction and practice. At 11, a senior teacher offers a dharma talk. This month features "Willing to Feel: Working with our bodies and physical experience on the path of meditation." In Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche wrote that in meditation, "You are not working with your mind alone. You are working with your mind and your body, and when the two work together, you never leave reality."  Together, we will explore what it means for our bodies and minds to work together, and how mindfulness of body might help us walk toward wakefulness in our daily lives. Refreshments and socializing follow this presentation. Donation requested.
