Temple CircleMay 29, 2018 7:00 pm

Temple Circle – meditation & awareness

 

This Tuesday group is a small meditation- & awareness-focused Practice ‘circuit’ meant for people who have been exploring Buddhism but wish to improve in: Meditation (25mins),Loving-Kindness, Equanimity, Compassion, Sympathetic Joy, Deep Listening, & Gratitude.

We will get to know each other while we deepen our Practice in a safe and caring environment. Members will have the opportunity to run a weekly of session (voluntary).

This is a different form: that of a Circle, with each member contributing and learning from each other.

 

 

To join, I am asking interested people to have a commitment to this Circle for a ‘season’.

(This is much the same as if you were to join a sports team. You can certainly miss a weekly session, but I ask that you are committed to being there for yourself and each other as if you were on a team.)

 

 

This ‘Season’ Practice will run Tuesday evenings from May 22nd through July 31st, starting at 7pm, at the Temple

(IE: 12 weeks). We usually finish about ~8:30pm, then a little shared cleanup of teacups that we used etc.)

 

You can come on Tuesday May 15th to try it out before the ‘committed’ Season starts.

 

It is a gentle group, led by it’s members. Membership is limited.

Dana to the temple: $25/person, speak to me if you cannot afford that, it should not be an impediment to attending.

 

In Gassho,

Ken,

Assistant – Calgary Buddhist Temple

Chaplain – UCalgary

Please contact me here if interested or if you have questions. Feel free to pass along to interested persons.

 

Each evening is closed to those who have signed up for the Season, sorry.
