with Nancy Hathaway
Thursday, April 2, 6-8 p.m.
Join us for our Dharma Talk series on the first Thursday of every month. The evening includes meditation, a talk, discussion, and time for visiting. Tea will be offered at 5:45 p.m.
What is relationship: to self, other, lover, grandchild, turnips!? Join Nancy Hathway for a joyful evening exploring the essence of relationship. How do we relate to the world, to this moment? In fact, what is this moment? What am I? What are you? What is this? The world is as it is. How do we relate to the ways things are? From the head? From the heart? Emotions are as they are. How do we relate to the human condition? The angry child is as it is. How do I relate to it? The pain in my heart is as it is. How do I relate to it? The world is as it is. How do I relate to the way I am? In fact, is there an “I” to relate to?
Everyone is welcome.
Come 5-10 minutes early; preregistration is not required.
Suggested donation: $5-20. Donations in any amount are graciously accepted.
