"So the refuge of Sangha is a very practical refuge for day-to-day living within the human form, in this body, in relation to the bodies of other beings and the physical world we live in. When we take this refuge we do not act in any way that causes division, disharmony, cruelty, meanness or unkindness to any living being, including ourselves, our own body and mind. This is being ‘supatipanno’, one who practices well."
~ Ajahn Sumedho
All are welcome to join this afternoon of practice for People of Color and Allies. We are aware of the social realities that engender our separateness, and of our collective humanity that offers opportunities to cultivate connectedness. We will come together through sitting meditation, walking meditation, and reflections on the Dharma. This precious opportunity of practice provides our Sangha a heart opening exploration of our individual and collective suffering and how we cultivate our beloved and treasured community.
Following the retreat, we will have time for tea and conversation.
