Happy Birthday Guatama! and Ten Breaths for Happiness

posted May 11, 2012, 12:17 PM by Five Stones
Vesakha Puja, or Buddha Day occurs at or near the full moon in May. It represents the day on which the Buddha was born, achieved enlightenment, and attained "nirvana".   Let's celebrate with a cake and 2600 candles.  

Recent neuroscience has made three important discoveries for nourishing happiness and joy.  We'll examine these discoveries and understand how to incorporate them into our practice.  These are reported in the Mindfulness Bell that is the journal for our tradition and is always available on line, and the sangha receives a "hard copy" each month for anyone to borrow:  pickup and return to the table top shared by the Dana bowl.  Please check out the article before Sangha if you can:  http://www.mindfulnessbell.org/index.php
Ken will lead.

If you are interested in receiving the Five Mindfulness Trainings Formally, please contact ken (541-760-9760) so he can bring you an application.  
The next opportunity is less than a month away, in Portland, June 6.
