Dear Members and Friends,
This Sunday our regular Sunday morning meditation is from 9:00 to 10:30. From 10:30 to 11:00 we have Open Heart Circle practice — a practice for people who are ill or have recently died. Our monthly community meeting is from 11:00 to 12:00.
The Emotional Rescue Workshop scheduled for this Saturday has been canceled. Next meeting is February 4.
Our Introduction to Buddhism series continues on Wednesday nights, starting January 11. The course is called Traveling From Confusion to Original Sanity. It presents the basic principles of Buddhism. You can drop in on a class by class basis or sign up for the 4 week course.
This Friday is the next Winter Kado class with Eileen Kay. WINTER KADO, JAPANESE FLOWER ARRANGING 1st and 3rd Fridays.
We are excited to announce that Andrew Holecek will be returning to Nalandabodhi for teachings on the bardo. The bardo teachings are intended for the end stages of life, but a closer reading reveals their deeper meaning: they apply to every moment. Any situation that ends — a job, relationship, day, or moment of mind — abides by bardo principles. Learning how to die is learning how to live. Tuesday Evenings, February 7 through March 14.

And, we are very happy that Mitra Karl Brunnholzl will be returning to Nalandabodhi at the end of February for a cycle of teachings on the practices of Mahamudra, and using the vajra songs of the great Tibetan yogin Milarepa. February 24, 25, and 26. This will be a fun and enlightening weekend. If you are new to the teachings on Mahamudra, this will be an excellent introduction. Experienced practitioners will deepen their understanding and practice through diving deep into Milarepa’s profound songs (and singing them too!). More information …
Dominie Cappadonna and Eileen Kay will facilitate a weekend workshop on Befriending Small Deaths – Big Deaths, February 17-19. More information …
