Pursuing our idea of returning to why we, as parents, are inspired by the Buddhist tradition, and how to communicate this experience to our children, in this upcoming meeting we will remember the Buddha’s life, why he embarked on his spiritual journey, his realization that the path of the Middle Way between extremes was necessary, and his attainment of the awakened state. Lars and Emily will use the illustrated book, Buddha, by the author and illustrator, Demi, as they recount/retell the story.
We will also have time for the 3 Bells meditation, song, returning to the practice of keeping a meditative journal, and mindful snacking.
We would love to hear from all of you, how you are coping with this latest round of COVID and social-political stress, what support you need, and how we might help families navigate these tough times.
Please RSVP and we will send you the address for the 23rd, and in the meantime, stay safe and healthy, remember that all things must pass, and keep a sense of humor!
