The DharmaBookclub will meet weekly on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 at 40 Kennedy Street.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME. We will share the book and the reading. No one needs to have the book in advance, and there is no homework.
We will begin studying Chapter 1: "The Power of the Sacred Forest" of Thich Nhat Hanh's book: Joyfully Together: The Art of Building a Harmonious Community
Thich Nhat Hanh
Parallax Press, 2003 - 109 pages
In "Joyfully Together, Thich Nhat Hanh explores the spiritual, emotional, and practical aspects of developing a community for life. He stresses the importance of communication in all our relationships as the basis for resolving difficulties and maintaining an atmosphere of harmony in sanghas, families, and in our daily encounters.
The format for the practice:
20 minute meditation ( bring a cushion or bench if you will need one)
round robin reading( and deep listening) from the book
dharma discussion and tea
May the merit of this practice benefit all beings and bring peace.
