    Item Description:

    I’m inspired to create a Dharma Sharing group for islanders who have a dedicated Buddhist practice. This type of group was cultivated by the Plum Village sangha, the monastery in southern France co-founded by Thích Nhất Hạnh, and goes something like this:

    “Dharma sharing is an opportunity to benefit from each other’s insights and experience of the practice. It is a special time for us to share our experiences, our joys, our difficulties and our questions relating to the practice of mindfulness. By practicing deep listening while others are speaking, we help create a calm and receptive environment. By learning to speak out about our happiness and our difficulties in the practice, we contribute to the collective insight and understanding of the Sangha.”

    This is a space to share, to listen, and to learn, in a spirit of respect and support, with our fellow Dharma sisters and brothers. The group is open to anyone who lives on Salt Spring and who has a dedicated practice from any Buddhist tradition — Theravada, Zen, Mahayana, Vajrayana, and so forth.

    If you’re interested in joining the group, please drop a line and tell me a little bit about yourself and your practice. Let me know which days and times you cannot attend a gathering. We’ll limit the group to ten or twelve people, and then once we have that number I’ll find a central place where we can meet.

    Namo Buddhaya!

      Is there a risk that foreign powers will try to influence our 2019 Fire Board Trustee election? The good news is: Absolutely not. Nobody outside of Salt Spring Island really cares how we structure and manage our fire service. But this also shows how uniquely isolated we are as an island. While the Crofton Fire […]
