Dharma Gathering/Open House


with Joe Arak
August 4 / 10:00 AM - August 4 / 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 followed by discussion. This month features "Ten Reasons NOT to Practice Meditation." If we want to get into meditation, or have already begun to meditate, we might discover we can be very resourceful in coming up with excuses not to practice.  Please join us as we look at ten common obstacles to meditation and how we can keep awakening on the path of practice in spite of them. Refreshments and socializing follow this presentation. Donation requested.
