Description of talk:

The Navajo have a way of describing someone who has committed a crime as: "he or she who acts as if they have no relatives.”
This talk explores how unskillful actions/crimes might arise out of a growing sense of alienation and a lack of belonging, endemic of our modern way of life.  The speaker will share insights from stories about working with maximum-sentenced, violent offenders, what can be learned from their journey of healing, and how this may shine a light on our own struggles.
Cost: Donations accepted with gratitude
Anything else:
No pre-registration. Drop-in. Includes 30 minute meditation, talk, and opportunity for questions and discussion.

Alameda Sangha is a place to practice and discuss mindfulness meditation
and Buddhist teachings. Founded in 2008, today we are led by three teachers
of the Theravada tradition, Pauletta M. Chanco, Rebecca Dixon, and Deb Kerr.

 YOGA at Sangha
Dina Hondrogen, a sangha member and yoga instructor offers yoga from 6 - 6:45 pm
on the last Sunday of each month, in the church before our regular meeting. Yoga
can aid settling in and deepening your meditation.  Please bring your own yoga mat,
bare feet and an empty stomach. If you would like to bring props to help facilitate
practice feel free, it will help if you are a tight beginner. Donations are welcome.
