Ehipassiko — Come and See for Yourself
Monthly Sitting & Inquiry
Fee by donation
July 19, 2016
07:00 pm - 09:00 pm
Special Community Discussion
Many of us are still processing the events of earlier this month and perhaps also a multitude of emotions. A number of practitioners are asking how to practice internally and externally, as directed by the Buddha, with the events of our contemporary lives. We are once again asked to investigate a most poignant aspect of practice — how external events can be met internally with the wisdom of interconnectedness, compassion and integrity; and externally without duality.
On July 19, as part of our Monthly Sitting & Inquiry, NYI will offer the opportunity to come together and mindfully listen to, share with, and support one another as we bring our practice to all that is occurring within and around us.
Fee by donation: Suggested starting donation is $15 but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds. For this event all donations are split evenly between the teacher(s) and NYI.
