This week @ sangha - the first precept

Hi all. This week @ Beaches Sangha we have...finally....Betsy's session on the first precept. 

Precepts are like undertakings or serious commitments to try and do something. At the start of the year when we discussed what we'd like to do I suggested a focus on these as a means of making the dharma practical and using sangha to help us sweep our lives in a helpful direction. The idea is to choose a precept, declaring an intention to put energy into it, and reporting back to each other to help maintain progress. 

There are 5 common ones in Buddhism that are usually in action on Buddhist retreats. This Thursday night, Betsy will give a talk and we'll have a discussion about the first one.

Hope to see you there.
