The first and second Monday program focus for December will be on ‘Moving into Stillness and Peace.’ With the darkening of the year, shorter days and longer nights encourage us to quiet and to settle. At the same time, the pressures of the holiday season can make it challenging to maintain inner calm. Together we will investigate and reflect upon teachings and practices which support qualities of inner stillness and equanimity.
The third Monday will bring our usual program/practice opportunity to work with the Buddha’s ethical trainings with particular attention to how precepts practice helps the inner world grow more peaceful.
ERBC’s fourth Monday falls on Christmas Eve this year, and we will have a special Monday evening gathering that evening. (Please note location change!)
