Dear Troy Shambhala,
The Year of the Earth Boar is upon us. Let’s celebrate together with some good practice and good food. Sitting meditation each Thursday in February is from 6:30-7:30 PM, as usual. And do join us for the following extras after sitting:
Feb 7: Community Dinner in Troy – We’ll end sitting a bit early and head out to dinner in the neighborhood. Suggested: Sunhee’s Korean, with vegetarian & vegan options
February 14: Snack Salon – Feel free to bring something to share! Food, Conversation, and Meditation is the Sakyong’s prescription. We can do all of that in one shot! We’ll also have a community update.
February 21: Book Study – Shambhala: Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chögyam Trungpa – Chapters TWO & THREE. On third Thursdays in 2019, we study SSPW as a group. Perhaps this text has been sitting on your shelf for a while; now is a great opportunity to crack it open. Read chapters Two and Three ahead of time and we will discuss it after sitting. Texts are available for purchase.
February 28: Group Book Reading – When Things Fall Apart, by Pema Chödrön
