One Year Hence: Reflections on Buddhist Wisdom – Daily March 15-19th, 2021

We have been sheltering in place for one year. Please pause in the middle of each day this week to join with others and reflect on timeless Dharma wisdom. We will touch into the Four Noble Truths, impermanence, emptiness, and living this human life well.

In the words of Issa:
This dewdrop world —
Is a dewdrop world,
And yet, and yet . . .

True compassion, beyond mere sentiment, issues from clearly seeing this world.

We will sit briefly, then Kim will offer some reflections, followed by group discussion. Bring your wisdom, heart, peace, and deepest questions.
