Upcoming Tuesday Open House Talks:

November 5:

Meditation and the Senses, with Alan  Anderson.

In some traditions, the senses are thought to distract from meditation. But it turns out that the sense fields can be the most immediate and direct way to peace and sanity. Coming to our senses is the brilliant path.

November 12:

Discover the Wealth Within: the Practice of Generosity, with Napa Chayaworakul.

Since the time of the Buddha, the practice of generosity has been essential for the path of meditation. Often we think of wealth as possessions and attach our sense of identity and well-being to the chaotic energy of money. The Buddhist teaching on generosity offers an alternative to discovering our inherent wealth and a discipline for practicing the skillful means of joyful giving.

November 19:

The Feminine Principle in Ecospirituality, with Tavita Martinez.

Exploring the importance of awareness of mind, body and environment.

November 26:

A Video Interview with Thich Nhat Hanh,- with discussion led by Sam Potratz.

Thay leads Oprah through a tea meditation, explaining how the simple act of sipping tea can be an exercise in being more present in the moment.
