Alameda Sangha Joys of Generosity.

Dear Friends,

This Sunday we’ll delve into the Joys of Generosity.   When you’re truly feeling generous, you're not feeling anything but positive states of mind.  During our evening together, I’ll explore the true nature of generosity.  You’ll be able to observe generosity in action, discuss this heart-expanding practice, and investigate how it works for yourself.
I hope you will come join us, and invite anyone you know who might benefit from adding some uplift, peace, and happiness to their lives.
With mudita, Rebecca
