Dharma for hard times

Chaos, fear, confusion, anger–just the daily news cycle makes it all too easy to check out or shrink back. But is it possible to use it all?–to wake up, expand our hearts, and try to help?

-with Dr. Steven Shippee

 

Oct. 24th

The Eight Worldly Dharmas/Concerns:

How does one engage in “ordinary life” while maintaining the view we can experience in meditation on the cushion?  This evening we will examine the traditional  four pairs of attachments or involvements: [gain/loss; praise/blame; fame/disgrace;  pleasure/pain] and how they catch us out from our intentions.

Looking more carefully  at them, we can ease up their grip on our habitual patterns.

-with Grace Jessen
