Open House Talks
Nov 5 - Basic Goodness and Duality: Seeking Understanding
via Yin and Yang
When we try to understand "basic goodness" we often struggle. Often this question arises: If basic goodness exists, then basic badness does too. And if that's true, then what's the point. In this hosted discussion, we will look at the four qualities of yin and yang as described in traditional oriental medicine practices. We'll also look at these terms in light of Tai Chi Ch'uan practice, directing our examination eventually toward the Wu Ji--the ground of duality. Might this be another term for "basic goodness"?
Nov 12 - Karma: Perpetually Recreating Suffering
A discussion of Karma based on the teachings of Chogyam Trungpa
Teacher: Debbie Zarate
Nov 19 - Secular and Spiritual: Different, The Same and Inseparable
Our experience as we study, practice and live life is a fluid mixture of secular and spiritual. This happens to be a specialty of our tradition. Join a conversation about what our teachers have passed on to us and how this may relate to our own experience.
Nov 26 - Holiday Social
Come relax and enjoy the company of fellow meditators before the holiday rush. While there will be no formal discussion or talk this evening, everyone is invited to share their uplifted presence with each other over tea and snacks.
