This week @ Beaches Sangha - sutta study

Hi all. 

This week we have our monthly sutta study with Winton Higgins. We are up to Chapter XIII (13) of the book 'Satipatthana: The Direct Path to Realization'. This chapter covers contemplation of 'The Four Noble Truths' which we prefer to call the Four Great Tasks, but we'll let Analayo have his way at least until Winton is given the floor :) If you don't have the book, you can access it on line for free.

As always, it's most beneficial if you can read it prior to the session but if you can't make that happen, you'll still find the session valuable as Winton always talks us through the key points. It's a short chapter, so give it a shot :)

I hope to see you there.

This week @ Beaches Sangha

Hi all.

This week we have our second 'whatever comes up' session. We decided at the start of the year to have a few of these sprinkled throughout the year to allow us all to bring whatever is relevant for us, to discuss with our sangha. It might be things you're unsure of with the dharma, it might be a life situation you're facing and would like to process through a dharmic lens, or something that's just been on your mind about this human experience thing.

Last time we did this it was a rich, interesting and valuable discussion. Neil will be facilitating. I'll hope you'll join us.

This week @ Beaches Sangha - Subhana Barzhagi

Hi all.

This week @ Beaches Sangha Subhana Barzhagi is returning to give a talk on....I'm not sure what....but I'm sure it'll be interesting. For those of you who haven't met her, Subhana is both an Insight Meditation teacher and a Zen teacher.

Don't forget we have lovely new heaters in the Peace Park, so the cooler weather is no excuse for missing out on warming the cockles of your heart at sangha.

Hope to see you there.

No sangha meeting this week

Hi all.

There'll be no sangha meeting this week as almost all of the regular attendees will be either on the Beaches Sangha retreat or away on Thursday night. Meetings will resume again next week Thursday 14 May.

See you then.
