Wednesday Open Dharma Gathering [IN PERSON]

July 17th

Date details +
    Room: Main Meditation Hall

    7:00pm-8:30pm, in-person
    Open to all

    Wednesday Dharma Gatherings draw on the sangha - the third jewel of Buddhism - as a refuge and support for waking up. Depending on the week a presenter might share a key point from the classical Buddhist teachings, a memorable passage from a dharma text, a challenge or inspiration they are working with in their own path, or an exploration of putting the teachings into daily life.

    The view of Shambhala is whole-hearted engagement in life, i.e meditation in action. With this view, we do not separat our life into spiritual and secular. So how do we dig in fully and apply the teachings to our everyday lives? What can we learn from one another on the path?

    Conversations will be grounded in the experience of meditation in action.

    Each evening includes: Brief meditation instruction and 10-20 minutes of silent sitting practice, a short presentation on a dharma topic, and 30-45 minutes of open discussion 

    These Open House Dharma Gatherings are each Wednesday from 7-8:30pm in person at the Boston Shambhala Center. Registration is not required - just come by. All are welcome!
