2016 started off well. Last week's online retreat was complete with yummy food and good conversation. This Thursday we are on Chapter 4 of the "Working with Emotions" eBook ( found on the home page of www.flordenopal.org). It's a free downloadable PDF.
We are going to continue to do Pot Luck on Thursdays,so we can have food after meditations. We encourage those who attend the Zen Center to bring some food item with them as a communal offering. Last Thursday was a success and the food made the online retreat experience, after sitting meditation, a pleasant addition.
Please, read the short chapter on “Anger and Patience,” by Gelek Rimpoche for Thursday Buddhist Book Club. We hope to see you there.
