Join us on April 28 at 10-11 AM, for a flash meditation mob, or med-mob, on the quad at Mars Hill College Campus. Bring a blanket or chair. And if you wish to stay for the day of mindfulness that will follow, until 4 PM, at Redway, Tittman Hall, please bring a brown-bag lunch. Peace out. And send this to as many people as you dare...annoy them. We want this to be big!
Was wonderful! We had planned for seven people, and seventeen people crowded into the tea-room. Kathy Marth ran for more chairs, and I ran into the house (that is, we mindfully proceeded) for more copies of the forgiveness packet we handed out. It was dynamic and beautiful, esp. the forgiveness ritual toward the end. The workshop will be held at Urban Dharma, and at Grateful Steps bookstore in Asheville, coming up. Stay posted to News & Events.
I had a revelation about forgiving our son who died less than four years ago, for something he did many more years ago than that. It helps to take a specific incident, and come as close to compassion for the other as possible. With Jesse, that was easy. I loved him so. Still, there is forgiving to do...
Some actions may not be forgivable, but all actors are. For the actor, the person whose own suffering has spilled onto other people, there is always the possibility of compassion. There is always potential for mercy toward the suffering and confused person who hurts another. –Noah Levine, Against the Stream: A Buddhist Manual for Spiritual Revolutionaries
