Gratitude

A deep bow of thanks to Jeanne Corrigal, as well as all others who chose to make space and time in their lives to join us for our retreat this past weekend.  May the joyful merits of your practice be fruitful and of benefit to your hearts, minds, and souls; as well as of benefit to all that surrounds us.

Opportunities for regular practice

Sitting meditation

A reminder that our practice group continue meeting at Yoga Within. This season we will be meeting twice a month. The dates have been adjusted to accommodate the long weekends. You may want to note the dates and mark your calendars.
Our practice time starts at 5:00 pm. Our bell masters lead a guided sit with time for dharma discussion as well as walking meditation or deep rest. New people are always welcome, our way of practicing is gentle and friendly.

Inspiration
“Every one of us is trying to find our true home. Some of us are still searching. Our true home is inside, but it’s also in our loved ones around us. When you’re in a loving relationship, you and the other person can be a true home for each other.”

-Thich Nhat Hahn-
