    Taming the Mind and Walking the Bodhisattva Path

    Beginning on Sunday, May 13, Mr. Ken Ketchum will be offering a class following the 10 AM to 11 AM open sitting meditation practice. All are welcome to join; a donation for each class you attend would be appreciated.

    The Buddha’s teachings and the Shambhala teachings are like the two wings of a noble bird. The bird’s heart is caring for oneself, other beings and our shared world.You could say that the flight of the bird is our journey toward enlightenment.

    In this series of gatherings we will explore together the foundational views and practices of the Buddhist ‘wing.’ The narrow path of taming our mind brings real subtlety to our understanding of who and what we are. Inspired by the example of awakened ones of the past and present, such insight leads us to the vast activity of caring for others and the profound view of emptiness.  A path like that could be endless.

    Brief talks with plenty of opportunity for sharing questions and insights.  A reading list will be available.
