Dear Friends,

Please join us for this all-day meditation and contemplation on the Paramita of Exertion, one of the six transcendent actions of a BodhisattvaThis paramita teaches the role of exertion in developing joy and immediacy, acting compassionately without hesitation.  On this day we will bring together the three Buddhist principles of hearing, contemplating and meditating as a path of opening heart and mind.

The morning session (9AM till 12) will include dharma readings on paramita practice along with our usual nyinthun chants, sitting and walking meditation. The support of group practice enables us to extend and deepen our meditation. Individual meditation instruction will be offered throughout the morning for those requesting it.

In the afternoon session (1:30 till 5PM) we will view a video talk by Acharya Moh Hardin taken from a new series of talks by Shambhala senior teachers.  These talks on compassionate action are now being offered in this series of full-day nyinthuns. The talk will be followed by group discussion and meditations led by Janet Romaine and Bill Wooding.

The day also includes lunch and tea breaks. One may bring their own lunch or go out to one of the nearby restaurants. We look forward to sharing the rich tradition of Paramita practice with you.

Warm regards,

Diana, Janet and Bill
