This is a group for people who are interested in mindfulness meditation and the contemplative practices of Tibetan Buddhism, including loving kindness and compassion. We practice meditation every Tuesday evening and then have a talk and discussion. On the first Tuesday of each month we offer meditation instruction. We study both traditional teachings and modern teachers. We meet from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. every Tuesday at the Swarthmore Friends Meeting House, 12 Whittier Place, Swarthmore PA 19081.
Tonight will be a closing ceremony with the reading of traditional liturgies to arouse Bodhicitta and dedicate the merit of our group. We have made the difficult decision to end our group meetings, and this will be our last. Our group has been in existence for about 20 years in one form or another. We began in Media and moved twice, once to a second location in Media, and then 5 years ago to the Swarthmore Friends Meetinghouse. Along the way we have met many incredible people who have given their time and energy to help us build a community of Buddhist practitioners. We appreciate all the study and practice that has been done over the years, and the time that many people have donated to help host our gatherings and manage the group. We especially appreciate all the people who have taught the dharma to our group and led the meditation sessions. Thank you all for your bodhisattva activity.
One of our beloved teachers, Ven. Amy Miller will be continuing to teach in our area, and to provide spiritual counseling and coaching. We encourage all those who are interested to not hesitate to contact her through her website, www.amymiller.com.
