This week @ Beaches Sangha - What is practice?

Hi all. 

This week @ Sangha

"What is practice?" This is a question that was raised earlier this year and I thought it was a cracker. So I'm going to facilitate some thinking and discussion on it this week at Sangha.

We often refer to our dharma 'practice'. What exactly do we mean by that as secular 'practitioners'? Is it just about meditating? Are there parts of daily life that serve as part of practice? If so, what are they? Can we discover any rules of thumb to help us be mindful of opportunities for practice?

Come along and explore with me!

Sangha party
Don't forget we have our Sangha 'do' at our last meeting for the year on Thursday 15th Dec. Please let me know if you are coming, and if you'll bring something sweet or savoury to share.

Hope to see you Thursday.

This week @ Sangha - Fear & Safety

Hi all.

This week at Beaches Sangha Sylvie will be facilitating a discussion on Fear and Safety. What kind of things do we fear? Which of these do we face more often? What makes us feel safer?

Our last meeting for 2016 will be on Thursday 15th December when we'll have our usual Sangha Party. This is a lovely way to end the year. We have a short meditation, then we eat and drink and socialise together. We all bring some food/drink to share and if the weather's good we sit out on the grass and have a picnic. If it's not, we'll bring the bench tables inside and have an indoor feast.

Can you please let me know if you'll be coming, and if so, whether you'd like to bring a sweet or savoury dish.

I hope to see you on Thursday.
