Seasons change. Schedules change. We’re not meeting this Thursday, July 4, and our book study will happen on the 11th. Otherwise, sitting each Thursday in July is from 6:30-7:30 PM, as usual. And do join us for the following extras after sitting:
July 4: No Sitting Tonight! Happy Independence Day!
July 11: Book Study – Shambhala: Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chögyam Trungpa – Chapters 7 & 8. This Thursday, we will study SSPW as a group. Perhaps this text has been staring at you from the shelf for a while; now is a great opportunity to crack it open. We’ll discuss Chapters 7 & 8 together. Try to read the chapters ahead of time.
July 18: Lovingkindness Practice: We’ll devote half of the session to a guided contemplation of compassion. This powerful practice, developed by Acharya Judith Simmer-Brown, was given to us during a recent visit. The practice is optional and instruction will be provided. And then, Snack Salon! – Food, Conversation, and Meditation is the order for the day. We can do all of that in one shot! Feel free to bring something to share!
July 25: The last Thursday of each month is reserved to hear from Pema Chödrön. We’ll read a chapter from one of her phenomenal texts or play a short teaching.
