“Wise Effort”: Meditation and Dharma Talk with Ian Challis (Online)

November 13 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

This Sunday Meditation and Dharma Talk will be held live **Online via Zoom ONLY** from 4:30 p.m. until 6 p.m. Everyone is welcome.

Sundays in October & November: the Noble Eightfold Path

Buddhist dharma invites us toward the joys of liberation and peace. In our practice we incline the mind and heart toward freedom, and it is a gradual (yet sure) process with a path. The teachings offer us what the Buddha called the Noble Eightfold Path: eight interdependent and synergistic areas of practice that together lead us toward true happiness: Wise View, Intention, Speech, Action, Livelihood, Effort, Mindfulness, and Concentration.

Starting Sunday, October 2, and proceeding week by week, we will carefully investigate each location on the path as a deep teaching and uncover practical tools we can use right now to free our minds and hearts. 

Today’s topic: Wise Effort

There will be time for meditation, a dharma (teaching) talk by one of our regular or guest teachers, and time for your comments and questions.
