Guided Discussion on Emptiness

Thursday, August 10, 7-8:30 PM 

From the Heart Sutra – “Form is emptiness; emptiness also is form.”

Whether we have been practicing and studying Buddhism for many years or for only a few months, the concept of emptiness may seem perplexing. What does it mean? Is it helpful? If so, how?

We invite all Nalandabodhi Boulder members and friends to join us for a lively discussion of these questions, and especially, how do we actually experience emptiness in our daily lives. After a brief introduction to the topic, we will invite participants to share:

How do you experience and work with emptiness in your life, or do you?

A verse on the theme of egolessness/emptiness that resonates for you

The discussion will be led and facilitated by Douglas Frank and Neil Kolwey. Please feel free to bring a snack to share or a beverage of your choice. Suggested donation of $5.
