|Recurring Calendar (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Monday, repeating until December 27, 2021

Special Note about hybrid zoom/in person meeting

Monday Night Dharma Talk and Meditation is meeting as a hybrid –  IN PERSON & ONLINE. So, you are invited to come in person or anyone is also welcome to join via Zoom software. Current event status and links are on the Online Events page. If you choose to come in person, please be aware that the gate needs to be closed 10 minutes after the meditation begins at 7:00PM, so please be there on time! Someone can probably let you in after the meditation is over if you arrive after 7:10 PM.

DHARMA IN DAILY LIFE

When we really think about it, the only point to all our efforts in practice boils down to what we do in any given ordinary moment.  An ordinary moment can pass without notice, can pass through a lot of reactivity and aversion or can be drawn into a clutched heart wishing it could last forever.  Yet it is in our ordinary life moments that practice comes alive.  This year we will look at two aspects of practicing in ordinary life – the continuity of suffering and the continuity of mindfulness.  Liberation can be found in both.  In the continuity of suffering, we practice within the cyclical nature of suffering.  Gradually becoming increasingly aware of the way out of this circular trap, inherent within the moment.  In continuity of mindfulness, we practice within the strengthening nature of mindfulness.  Gradually deepening our capacity and confidence in seeing each moment for what it truly is – an ordinary moment in the natural flow of life.

On Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays, we will explore issues of daily life that are often left out of dharma teaching. Each month will focus on Issues like Technology, Wealth, Relationships, Social Engagement, Sex, Emotions, and Habits. Please join us for this rich exploration.
