Dharma Talk: What is Relationship?

with Nancy Hathaway
Friday, August 7, 6-8 p.m.
 
Via Zoom... link provided at the time of registration!
 
Join us for our first Dharma Talk via Zoom. The evening includes meditation, a talk, discussion, and time for sharing. 
 
What is relationship: to self, other, lover, grandchild, turnips!? Join Nancy 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?
