Every weekday, 8:45-9:00am, CIMC Guiding Teacher Narayan Helen Liebenson leads "Dharma in Daily Life" (DDL): a brief sitting practice, Dharma reflections and a Dharma practice for the day.
CIMC member and DDL sangha member, Tom Miller, is making a short film about DDL. He has already conducted Zoom interviews with many sangha members, but there is one piece still missing from the project. Tom asked if we could conduct some “bonus” DDL sessions that he could record for his film over Zoom. These sessions will be key to the film for two reasons: 1) to show some of what DDL looks and sounds like every day; and 2) to show images of many of the folks who attend DDL. This second point is important, because the film is going to be called “Gallery View” (the Zoom option where you can fill your screen with the other practitioners who are part of the session). A major theme of the film is that there is tremendous power and strength in the DDL community. The experience is defined by Narayan’s teachings, the path of practice, and what each of us brings to a session individually, and also by the fact that we do it together in spiritual friendship. The “Gallery View”, all of us practicing together each weekday morning, brings great ongoing joy and benefit.
And now we’re inviting you to be a part of the “Gallery View” for a special CIMC event!
On Sunday, December 12th from 11:00am-12:30pm ET, Narayan will be conducting four special DDL sessions that Tom will record for “Gallery View.” The sessions will happen over Zoom and will be structured just as regular morning DDL sessions are. For anyone new to DDL, it's a great way to learn what happens each weekday morning. For regular DDL participants, this is a chance for you to get a little more DDL in your life. As noted, Tom will be recording the sessions and will mostly stay out of the way (although he may ask for a bit more group waving or something like that afterwards!).
Here’s what you need to know if you’d like to help CIMC by joining us on December 12th:
- You must join at 11:00am, attend for at least one hour and participate with your video "on." The full program runs from 11:00am to 12:30pm ET.
- When registering, you will be asked to agree to an "Appearance Release". We require permission from each participant for their image to appear in the film. However, there is no guarantee that you will appear in the final version.
- The Zoom link will be at the bottom of the email you receive after registering.
- This program is freely offered, however, please register only if you plan to attend.
We do hope you join us for this special CIMC event.
