  • Third Thursday: Online Dhamma Talk and Discussion

    Online event

    This evening’s talk will address the Buddha’s teachings on the importance of basic aspects of our relationship with ourselves... simply put, our ability to love and feel compassion for ourselves. Through the years, there have been many people who have reported problems starting Metta meditation with sending good wishes to the self. An often repeated story about the Dalai Lama talks about his disbelief when he learned that people in the West do not have the same feelings of compassion and love for the self as in Buddhist countries. So, it’s not just you, it’s us... :) Discussion to follow. You don’t have to be an IBMR member to attend.

IBMR’s goal continues during this time of uncertainty and change. Our weekly meetings will continue online. This is possible by using Zoom, a popular video and audio conferencing tool. Joining the online Meetup will require a Meeting ID. The ID is posted below. This ID will also be posted on our FB page in the days preceding the Meetup. if you are new to Zoom and would like to learn how to use it, there are links for YouTube tutorials below. If you have never used a video conferencing tool, it is highly recommend that you review one or both of the tutorials. We will meet at the same time we did at All Souls, 6:30 PM, Eastern Time. The online meetups will last until 7:45 PM. We encourage attendees to join together for a virtual meditation at 8PM. IBMR has a sitting group on the InsightTimer app: IBMR Insight Timer Sitting Group. Anyone can join this group but it is not necessary. If possible, sit for thirty minutes. If you are ‘too busy’ to sit. Sit for an hour. :) Thursday’s will be hosted by one of the organizers or a guest speaker. There will be a dhamma talk, reading or teaching, possibly followed by discussion and defiantly followed by our usual “check in’s”. We want everyone to have an opportunity to share their current experience or practice, just as we do when we meet in person. For those who are camera-shy or who do not have a webcam - you can still join the meetings and see and hear everyone else. Your name will appear as one of the attendees and your voice will be heard. RSVP’s are nice but not necessary. 🙏🙏🙏 As promised here are the two Zoom tutorials (the first is a little over four minutes, the second is about eight minutes). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3Bkpn_ZxLU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9isp3qPeQ0Ev #IBMRThursdays
