Saturday, January 20, 2018
10:00 AM-12:00 noon: Teaching and Meditation
12:00 noon-1:00 PM: Brown Bag Lunch
1:00 PM-3:00 PM: Teaching and Meditation

Please join us for either or both sessions.

For the last six months we've been meeting once a month to work our way through the subject of mind training. Each of the first four months were dedicated to one of the contemplations called the Four Thoughts that Turn the Mind to the Spiritual Life. In months 5 and 6 we began looking at the actual teaching of the Seven Points of Mind Training.

This Saturday we will continue our exploration and meditation on these essential instructions with a focus on the mind training slogans of Point Four, "The utilization of the practice in one's whole life", and Point Five, "The extent of proficiency in mind training".

Opportunity for meditation will be interspersed throughout today's teaching.

Four 1-hour discussion/meditation sessions, with by brown-bag lunch at noon. There is no cost but donations to defray expenses will be gratefully received. We will continue our discussion of the text on Saturday, February 17, 2018.
