This coming Monday we will recite, study, and discuss the Five Mindfulness Trainings that are so basic to our practice of mindfulness. The Mindfulness Trainings are the core of the practice for the lay community
The Trainings are our commitment to ourself, our teacher and the practice. Without this continuity of practice, we lose our connection with the teacher and the teachings. Join us every Monday at 5:30 PM in our practice space at Mystic Mountain, 435 NW Fourth Street.
We will study together with openness, lightness of heart, sharing our experience with the practice, and deep listening.
(You may receive these trainings formally at the upcoming Many Rivers Sangha (which consists of all the Oregon Sanghas active within our tradition: we are a cell) The Formal Ceremony consists of practitioners from many sanghas throughout the area, you will share your intention/aspiration to use the Five Mindfulness Trainings, as standards to guide our spiritual path. They will guide your life and give you more access to finding refuge in the Sangha, the Dharma, and the Buddha's light within. This is a formal and joyful ceremony, as presented to you by a dharma teacher (Dharmarcharya). Tentatively set for June 6 in Portland. Please contact Ken to make arrangements.
With Love and Peace,
