"Finding Ground on a Spiritual Path"
with Brian Lesage, Insight Meditation Teacher
Deep trust is an essential quality and one of the hallmarks
of being on a spiritual path. This talk will offer reflections
on deep trust through images and stories to support your
capacity to contact and develop this vital quality.
Everyone is welcome to come so please feel free to bring a friend!!!
April 18-19 Retreat
Our upcoming retreat is full but the wait list is activated. So if you still wish to attend please follow this link: https://salidasangha.eventsmart.com/?p=6
We usually do have cancellations and you will be notified by email from "Eventsmart" if space becomes available.
April 21st and 23d Evening Sessions with Brian
Brian is generously extending his stay with us in April and will be hosting two evening discussions continuing with the retreat topic "Our Relationship to Time". They will be held at the sanhga house, 248 D St. from 6:30 to 8:30 pm both evenings. Anyone may attend even if you are not at the retreat.
Private Sessions With Brian
There are still some available times for private practice discussions with Brian on Tuesday, April 21st and Thursday, April 23d. Sign up sheets are in the kitchen at the sangha house.
Sangha House Signage
In our efforts to reach a broader more inclusive community the sangha board is considering putting up a nice sign outside our house. Probably something simple like "Salida Insight Meditation Center" with sit times and Everyone Welcome posted on it. If you have any thoughts or ideas about this please contact one of our board members or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Few Donations Needed
Another thing we are working on is sustainability practices within our sangha.
We need a few things at the house and thought that rather than going out and buying them we would see if anyone can donate them to us. They are:
A recycle bin for the kitchen.
Book ends for the library.
A nice rug for the library.
Any extra slippers you might have lying about and also a big basket we could put them in.
Salida Sangha on Facebook
Thanks to a very dedicated volunteer our Facebook page is very active and receiving lots of views. Please follow us on FB!
As we are in the habit of gathering together in a small space we want you to know that we will be taking extra measures to regularly disinfect the sangha house and ask that everyone who joins us there is mindful of the CDC recommended safety precautions. Thanks!
Denny's Poem of the Month
Breath of Life (Danna Faulds)
I breathe in All That Is-
to take everything in,
as if my heart beats
the world into being.
From the unnamed vastness beneath the
mind, I breathe my way to wholeness and healing.
Each Breath a "yes,"
and a letting go, a journey, and a coming home.
May you all be happy, healthy, safe and at peace,
Your Sangha Board
