Dear Troy Shambhala,
Last spring The Shambhala Meditation Group of Troy welcomed Acharya Judith Simmer-Brown to our space where she introduced a profound lovingkindness practice. We have been working with this practice regularly as a group ever since. This inspiring senior teacher is returning to Troy on November 7 to teach again on that practice. All are welcome. Details below (be sure to register). Sitting is from 6:30-7:30 PM, as usual. And do join us for the following extras after sitting:
November 7: Compassion Without Limit – Troy welcomes Acharya Judith Simmer-Brown who will offer the practice of lovingkindness. This evening session introduces a contemporary adaptation of traditional Buddhist lovingkindness practice that softens our relationship with others, ourselves, and our fractured world. Space is limited, so please register!:
November 14: Lovingkindness Practice: We’ll devote half of the session to a guided contemplation on 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, Snacks! – 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!
November 21: Book Study – Shambhala: Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chögyam Trungpa – Chapter 12. This Thursday, we will study SSPWas 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 Chapter 12 together. Try to read the chapter ahead of time, but don’t freak if you’re not all caught up.
November 28: Happy Thanksgiving Everybody! No sitting tonight
