Storyin60 bridges the spoken and written word to share our inspiration about the Dharma, celebrate our new spiritual home, and grow a strong, diverse Sangha. In an effort to build connection between individual sangha members, and share what inspires us to practice, we have created a platform to share the written and spoken word via short audio recordings and written reflections.
Storyin60 asks, Why do you seek refuge in the Dharma? What has inspired your practice? Reflect on a first retreat experience, a powerful moment of awakening, a memorable quote from a teacher, a conversation with a sangha member, a Dharma high “moment,” or another powerful encounter with the Buddha, Dharma, or Sangha.
These short stories will inspire people to practice, support the realization of a new spiritual home for SIMS and grow our diverse Sangha.
Here’s how you can participate:
- Record a 60 second audio recording (don’t worry if it’s a bit longer) using your smartphone or computer. Unless you are choosing to present your story anonymously, begin your recording by introducing yourself, “Hi, my name is ______ and this is my Storyin60.”
- Write a few sentences of reflection on how the Dharma has inspired you.
- Optional: take a selfie with your smartphone and share it with us so sangha members can delight in your being.
- Upload your audio file and fill out the form below.
