The Tuesday meeting will be focused mostly on the practice itself, rather than on Buddhist philosophy. Although, in a natural presentation of ideas (Dharma talk) surely Buddhism as a philosophy will be present. However, since the focus is on the application of the Dharma, there will be the opportunity to share with others the difficulties and challenges encountered in the process of spiritual growth. $3 donation requested.
***The new meeting place for the meeting at the Center for Spiritual Care, seemed a beautiful and calm place to meet. We are looking forward to seeing all this coming Tuesday. Steve and Vance
Meditation, Dharma talk and group discussion: 6:00-7:15
Meditation instructions: Sit up straight, put your hands comfortably in your lap or on your knees, and focus your mind on your in and out breath. If you wish, count each in/out combination up to 10 and then start over. Any variation that keeps your attention in the present will do. When you realize you are thinking about something, let the thought go and return to the present.
