PATHWAYS TO AWAKENING
Wednesdays in 2023, 7pm to 9pm.
Caminante, no hay camino, se hace camino al andar. Pathmaker, there is no path, the path is made by walking. (Antonio Machado)
There are as many paths to awakening as there are beings - it's up to us to start walking and let each step reveal itself, until, as some would say, we discover we were already where we wanted to be. Luckily the Buddha gave countless clear instructions to guide us. This year we'll look at some of them together.
In January we'll begin our exploration with a series on the Anapanasati Sutta, the Buddha's meditation instructions, directing us to discover the nature of reality through gentle attention to our experience.
Jan 4: Mokshasi will introduce the Sutta
Jan 11: Shunyamala will share her reflections on the second set of verses - feeling/vedana. There will also be a Mitra Ceremony for Molly and Dylan - marking their personal commitment to practice.
Jan 18: Prasadachitta will continue with the Heart-Mind/Citta set of verses.
Jan 25: Mokshasi will lead the last night of the series on Wisdom
Here is a link to a series of talks on this Sutta given by Viveka in 2003, still well worth a listen. And here is the Sutta from that same retreat.
