Sunday morning instruction and meditation begins with generosity as a living liberation practice of non-clinging, and moves to a guided sit in generosity toward the self (Jeanne). This sit ends with guided instruction in walking with an attitude of offering generosity (Susie).
Saturday afternoon guided practice in gratitude for subtle pleasant experiences and in the importance of supporting our meditation through noticing these pleasant states. The sit ends with a guided meditation and walking instruction in experiencing the body through the senses. (Jeanne)
Saturday morning dharmette in gratitude and generosity as a reciprocal relationship, rather than a transactional relationship, followed by a guided meditation in the refuges as gratitude practices. (Susie) The sit ends with walking instructions and encouragement to sense the body as a support for the embodied gratitude of being present. (Jeanne)
This week we continue with Wisdom, the 4th of the 10 Parami, or qualities of heart and mind that support the highest happiness. We explore what wisdom is, and how it can be an accessible, daily support for peace in everyday life.
This week we continue our exploration of the Parami - ten qualities that can support the mind and heart to cross the floods of challenges that can sweep us away. We turn to the practice of sila, which Jeanne likes to translate as good relations, and ways that we can reflect on our skillfulness as a support for joy.
