Sangha Book Study Group
Our Sangha Book Group continues to study The Five Invitations by Frank Ostaseski. 

Carol is leading us in the 3rd Initiation this month. Please re-read this section of the book if you have a copy. Otherwise, come join the discussion and sharing.

We meet the first two Tuesdays of each month which will be Sept. 4 and 11 from 7:00 to 8:20 pm. 

We have five copies of the book to share so there is no need to purchase the book unless you would like to own a copy. 

All are welcome and it is not necessary to have read the book beforehand. We will read selected passages together.

A dear sangha sister, Anahata, created this beautiful mandala outside our zendo to honor the rescue and survival of the Thai boys, their coach, and thier support circle. There are 12 stones representign the boys and a piece of an oak tree representign their coach. The rose petals surrounding them represent the outer circle of loving support from families, divers, rescue workers, government officials, community members and all those who supported the boys directly or indirectly 💗 🙏 Our sangha  dedicated the merit of our meditation practice to this group of people many times. May they be well.

Have you considered deepening your practice? A week-long visit to the monastery in Escondido (near San Diego) may be just what you need. They have just listed all their special retreats and seasonal weeklong retreats on their website. It's well worth a visit!
