An Exploration of Generosity

Hi Everyone - Since next Saturday is our last regularly scheduled meeting before Christmas, I thought it would be nice to explore one of the most admired qualities that people can embody, Generosity (Dana, pronounced dah-na in Sanskrit, which is considered one the the 6 Perfections or "perfection-izers" in Mahayana Buddhist traditions).

In our time together for this gathering, I thought we could look some traditional interpretations of generosity and the power it has to transform us as the givers, as well as what generosity means to each of us, what it is not, and how we might like to embrace the spirit of generosity throughout the year in our own lives.

We will follow our discussion time with a generosity meditation.

Hope you can make it and please let me know if you have any questions.

I look forward to connecting soon!

Best to all,

Blair

    As we say in Pittsburgh younes (or is it yinz?) are an awesome group. I needed an oasis for my soul, and I found it. Blair's guided meditation was so soulful and inspiring. While dealing with "family" issues, I am "weighing in" ideas of me making gifts to the most "need ridden" amongst the family, and doubling those gifts if others are able to match them. Perhaps through giving we create healing while recognizing some require more than others. Prayers and intentions to promote such healing would be appreciated. Love and Peace, Larry

    I'm sorry I won't be able to make it! I'll be in Seattle paying visits this weekend, but look forward to the post-holiday meet-up!
