Temple Refuge Circle – Oct thru early Dec ‘Season’

(a ‘refuge’ is a safe place – every Buddhist takes ‘refuge’ in the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha)


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 Oct 10th through Dec 5th, starting at 7pm, at the Temple.
We usually finish about ~8:30pm, then a little shared cleanup of teacups that we used etc.

You can come on Tuesday Sept 12th 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,
Calgary Buddhist Temple

    Hello Ken,

    I’ve been attending services for a while now and would like to join the Tuesday Circle, however, I know for sure that I will not be able to make every week. Some weeks I have obligations I must fulfill for the children (about 20% of the time). Would it be possible for me to join knowing that I will not be able to attend all the time?

      Hi! I understand completely. May I see who commits to the season this Tuesday evening before saying yes? If everyone comes who has indicated interest, we will be full already but it is my experience that best intentions sometimes get overridden by bosses and life, lol. Can I ask for your email address sent to me at kenmadden@gmail.com?
