Our Dharma Study Group

 

 

 

In this weekly session, we participate in group study and discussion of a Dharma text from our lineage. We pick texts that are of interest to both new and long-term students, and we generally alternate between introductory material and more advanced topics. Our objective is to stimulate discussion about the Dharma and how it applies to our everyday lives. The study group is a great place for beginners to start as there are many opportunities to ask questions of more experienced practitioners. We begin each session with a period of sitting meditation. Please feel free to attend any one or more classes. New participants are welcome at any time.

 Current Study Session

 

On January 9, we will begin a study and practice course based on Mingyur Rinpoche’s Joy of Living: “Practicing Awareness and the Breath in Difficult Situations.” Challenging situations like illness, the loss of a job or a loved one, and problems at home or at work are often times when our emotions take over and we feel powerless to manage our lives. One way that we can learn to stay centered in the midst of emotional turmoil is to relax in open awareness. Instead of running from difficult situations or acting out, simply relax the mind and embrace the situation with the gentle touch of awareness. All are welcome. Please join us!
