Dr. Cheryl Fraser is back this Saturday, and she will be continuing her talk about taking refuge and the five precepts.
Also tomorrow, Dr. Fraser will be announcing a Sangha Challenge. Watch this space for more information.
As you may know, there are beautiful new floors in the Buddha House. With the renovation, the room is cooler, so if you want to stay warm while meditating you should bring a meditation shawl or small blanket.
We have great news! The Bethlehem Retreat Centre has opened up some more spots for our upcoming March Peaceful Mind, Open Heart retreat. If you would like to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The total cost is $215, and is payable by cheque to the Nanaimo Buddhist Meditation Group by February 8th.

The Buddha was arguably the first psychologist. He taught us how to directly experience our minds, thoughts, and emotions. Through cultivating awareness of our mind, we can reduce distress and increase calm and happiness.
This weekend will focus on insight meditation and Metta practice. It will be a silent residential retreat with some guided meditation and Dharma talks.
A few spots have been opened up by the Bethlehem Retreat Centre. Registrations with full payment must be received by February 8th. This guarantees the space at the Bethlehem Retreat Centre.
Space is very limited, so if you would like to attend, please send your registration forms in early.
Total Cost: $215
Please note that all deadlines are made by the Retreat Centre.
Registration forms are available at our Saturday Sangha meetings, or by emailing email@example.com.
