Awareness of Emotions and Mental States
with Tempel Smith
Friday, June 22
7:00 – 8:45 pm
The mind (and heart) are the forerunners of all experience, and for this it deserves careful attention and familiarity. It is through the mind we process our experience of the world, and depending on which qualities of the mind are present we will have very different experiences. During the day of practice we develop mindfulness of the breath and body as a foundation of awareness, and then turn our insight practice to the mind itself.
Friday, June 22: 7 – 9 pm (also open to the public as a stand-alone evening)
Saturday, June 23: 9:45 am – 5:00 pm
Friday evening is required for those continuing on Saturday.
Half-day open practice session, for the whole community
Saturday, July 14th
Drop in between 9:00 am – 12 noon
We offer a half-day, open practice session on one Saturday per month, as the schedule allows. As with our drop-in sits at noon, volunteers will ring bells and be on hand if you need anything.
Come enjoy the support of shared practice.
Drop in for all or as much of this open practice period as you’d like. Feel free to come when you can, leave when you need to; joining mid-sit is perfectly fine.
The morning will be held in noble silence.
Please be sure not to wear fragrances or scented products. Thank you!
Peace Through Diversity
Saturday, July 28
10 am – noon
Bozeman Public Library Lawn
Understand how awareness of diversity can create a culture of peace. Our purpose is to present a variety of ways for people to think about creating a culture of peace that results in greater harmony among themselves and all others.
Several community leaders will speak at the event. Each speaker will give a 5 minute talk about what peace means to them and how it can be achieved. Each talk will be followed by 7 minutes in silent contemplation of the words just heard and what they mean to you.
