with Grace Jessen

March 2nd

    Room: Online

    Machig Labdron 1055-1153 was not only unusual in being a prominent teacher as a woman, but developed the only Buddhist practice originating in Tibet. “Help Those You Do Not/Cannot Help..." is one of Machig Labdron's five slogans.  More well known is "Go to places that scare you.”  Others are "Confess your hidden faults,” “Approach what you find repulsive,” and “Whatever you are attached to, let  it go. "

    When we look at what we usually turn away from, in ourselves or in others, willingly, without aggression,  we may unexpectedly find more freedom than before we looked. And we may find that things are not exactly what they seem to be. Everyone is invited to this discussion...prior knowledge not needed.

    During the pandemic, we will be meeting on Zoom. Simply click here to join us: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82910957211  The program includes initial group meditation instruction at 6:30 pm, sitting practice from 6:30-7:00pm, and an introductory talk and discussion from 7:00 – 8:00pm.
