Sunday sitting proposal

From: Bryan
Sent on: Thursday, November 29, 2012 9:39 PM

Greetings. Several members have indicated that they would prefer meetings which allow more time for socializing and getting to know one another. In that vein, here is proposal (which we can discuss Sunday):

Meditate for 40 minutes, as we have traditionally done. We can mix sitting with other types of meditation (such as walking), depending on preferences.

Follow with a Dharma discussion lasting 15-30 minutes, if inclined. This week, perhaps we could discuss our views on the purpose/goal and benefits of a meditative practice (as well as the inherent conflict in having such goals).

Follow with social gathering in the entry area, for those wishing to stay on, perhaps ending around 6:00.

Doug will be away the next few weeks, but he, David, and Upstate Yoga Center have generously made provisions for us to continue to use this beautiful facility. Thanks!

Hope to see you on Sunday.

Bryan
