Meditation + Dharma Learning: “The Ten Paramitas: Generosity Part 2”

April 13, 2019 @ 1:15 pm - 3:30 pm CDT

Please join us tonight, Saturday April 13th, for meditation followed by Dharma Learning on the “Ten Paramitas.”

This week, we will continue to study the First Paramita: Dāna (Generosity, Giving). We will read articles on not just Giving, but also the power & practice of Receiving. What is the intimate inter-relationship between Giving and Receiving? Why is Receiving also a form of generosity? What mindset should we have as we Receive? And, ultimately, why is there really no separate giver, receiver, or gift?

On the 1st and 2nd Saturdays of each month, we do some Dharma learning and discussion following meditation, with this schedule:

6:15 PM: Door Opens* – meditation instructions provided if needed

6:30 PM ~ 6:40 PM : Slow Moving Meditation – to help settle our body & mind

~6:45 PM: Sitting Meditation

~7:20 PM: Dharma Learning & Discussion

~8:30 PM: Adjourn

You may attend any or all segments of the evening.

Beginners welcome. No cost to attend. Donations welcome at-the-door to support the continual operations and growth of this group, including the cost of our monthly rent and Meetup subscription fees.

Wear loose comfortable clothing, and please note that shoes are not allowed on the meditation mat.

We also meet on other Saturdays with slightly different programs – see calendar for details.
