It is with a heavy heart and a fair amount of anger that I write to you today. While maintaining my quarantine, I am doing what I can do raise the voices of those unheard. To write. To listen. And be a little indignant.
With a bit of surprise, we had planned to have Keith serve as the facilitator in June. He is a member of the Still Water Sangha in St. Paul and has previously participated with the Blooming Heart Sangha in Minneapolis. It feels like a gift that he leads on Sunday.
Please join Order of Interbeing Members and Aspirants in our monthly recitation of the Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings. This event takes place on the 1st Sunday of each month at 6:30am (Pacific Time).
The text of the reading is always available for following along. This month we have Natalie and Patty reading the recitation with Keith on the bell.
If you join the call, please enter with silence as we begin with 5 minutes of silent sitting together followed by the recitation. At the conclusion we have the opportunity to greet each other. There is an optional sharing time following the recitation.
We use the Zoom platform for the recitation. This allows you to connect using your phone or computer with voice-only or video and voice.
