Dear Beautiful Sangha:
We will meet for meditation on Sunday July 31st from 6 –
7:30 pm. The group will decide where to meditate, either in the Memorial
Garden in the back behind the church or in the Walker Room of the
Unitarian Universalist Church of Bloomington Normal. Arrive early to get
settled. Since the summer season is upon us, it is recommended that you
bring supplies to meditate in the garden: Cushion or a folding chair
It should be noted that at times, we share the space at
UUBN with somewhat noisy and distracting groups and we just fold that
distraction into our practice. They will try to be respectful of our
space as well.
Someone will choose the reading from Joseph Goldstein’s
book called, Insight Meditation. We will read a chapter a week during
our session. We also welcome other Buddhist writings or videos or dharma
talks on occasion.
All welcome, participation in the discussion optional. We
will follow our usual meditation practice (20 minutes sitting, 20
minutes optional walking, 20 minutes sitting followed by the reading and
discussion for the last 30 minutes).
The group messages that are sent out will appear on the
under the Blog section tab, you will also find a link to the Facebook
page on the website. There are many other features and resources there,
including suggested readings and websites on meditation and Buddhism as
well as our lending library. Please review the Group Agreements on the
website from time to time or if you are new to the group.
Questions may be answered from the website contact or from (this) email reply.
