As we enter the darkest time of the year, we have an opportunity to take refuge in the blessings of silence and stillness. On Nov 29, our 5th Thursday of the month, we will be practicing three periods of sitting as well as tea meditation. Please know that you are invited to “sit” in any way that supports your body/mind – such as lying down, standing, using extra cushions to prop you.
As always, on the first Thursday in December, we will be reciting the Five Mindfulness Trainings. Unfortunately, we will not have a Day of Mindfulness in December.
On Thursday, December 20th, Waves and Water will be celebrating Winter Solstice with a candle light service, tea meditation and sharing of songs, stories, poetry and any other gift you wish to offer to the sangha. Everyone is warmly invited. If possible, please rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org to help us prepare for the evening. Treats to share are very much welcome.
There will be no sangha gathering on Dec 27th. We will resume on Jan 3, 2019.
May your hearts be at peace…
The Caretaking Council,
Waves and Water Sangha
