The Mindfulness Practice Community of Houston meets on Sunday evenings from 5:30 - 7:30 PM at 1712 Fairview (rear building, please enter through the courtyard door). Our usual program consists of an hour of sitting and walking meditation, chanting and incense offering, and the program for the evening.
In the spirit of mindfulness, please arrive in time to be seated before the first period of meditation begins at 5:30 PM.
Out of respect for those with sensitivities, please do not wear fragrance.
Program Schedule: Sun. March 3 - Dharma Talk by Michael Ciborski
Our evening program will be a Dharma talk (through Zoom) by Michael Ciborski from his home in New Hampshire. Michael is the Dharma teacher who leads our fall retreat each year.
This is the first one for 2019. We will begin with a period of meditation at 5:30 followed by Michael’s talk. Michael is the Dharma teacher who leads our fall retreat each year. For our fall retreat, we will study the Noble Eight-Fold Path, not as a mental or academic exercise, but as an introspective discovery of how each spoke on the wheel of the dharma manifests in our own lives. Leading up to the retreat, a 4 part course of study will be offered via a Zoom presentation with a question and answer period.
This evening’s topic: Inward Cultivation – the autumn of our daily life (Right Effort, Mindfulness, and Concentration)
All donations this evening will go to Michael
