Upcoming Special Events
Bringing the Dharma Home:
Meditation and Dharma Discussion for People of Color and White Allies.
Sunday, May 17, 4:00-6:00pm
Opportunity for dana.

This group sitting is a follow up to the film event "White Like Me" held in March. Let's continue to bring in the Buddha's teachings on Love and Wisdom as we sit together and engage in thoughtful discussion on how these teachings can support our exploration of true freedom. Dharma teacher Jean Esther and people of color sitting group facilitator Trellis Stepter will hold a space where we can talk about issues of race and privilege from an open-hearted place of compassion, self-inquiry, listening, and friendship. Everyone welcome!
Dana will go to the Diversity Fund for future programming.

Mindful Investigation of Craving and Eating
Special event with Rebecca Bradshaw
Monday, June 8, 7:15pm
Suggested contribution: $5-10 plus teacher dana
This evening discussion will be a follow-up from the half-day eating meditation workshop; new folks are also invited to attend. We will explore the Buddhist teachings on craving and how we can apply these teachings directly to our relationship to food. These explorations can be helpful for freeing ourselves from bondage to things and experiences that ensnare us through craving.
