*Sit & Dharma Talk – Rich Howard – Two Darts: How is that working for you?

November 9, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:15 pm

Two Darts: How is that working for you?
Sit & Dharma Talk with SIM Community Mentor, Rich Howard

The last few months have presented us with a seemingly unending string of tragic events. Natural disasters, human cruelty, and events combining both have caused death and destruction around the world. As we take all this in, how is our practice serving us? The Sallatha Sutta, SN 36:6, provides some clues. Are we adding to the pain or using our mindfulness to “endure courageously, with patience and equanimity?” SIM Community Mentor Rich Howard  will lead a discussion of how this well-known sutta may help us with our current challenges.

To prepare, read “In the Buddha’s Words” page 21 and section I,2(1) The Dart of Painful Feeling, pages 31-32.

Sacramento Insight Meditation events are sustained by the generosity of instructors in offering teachings freely and on the generosity of students and members of the meditative community in the form of financial support, service and participation in events. With our practice of dana, we support our Sangha.
