Dear Friends,
We will enjoy tea with dharma discussion this week, as well as sharing our mindfulness practices together.  Irene will lead, and Anne and Audrey are bringing  treats.  You are invited to share something from your practice, a poem, story, experience, etc.  This is a wonderful time to share.  I will email separately an announcement about upcoming Buddha 101, led by Jerry Braza, in Salem beginning in April.  Please consider this as an opportunity to explore some of the basic ideas and practices in our tradition.  Most of you have met Jerry Braza, and know how skillfully he can present this material.  He is one of two Dharma Teachers in Oregon. 
With Gratitude,

Following is the schedule for upcoming silent Days of Mindfulness at the Trappist Abbey in Lafayette through July 2013.
