Dear Ones,
Come and explore further and deeper, the hindrances or those 5 which cover over our inner nature of goodness, kindness and generosity by cultivating a more intimate understanding and relationship with them rather than turning away or continuing to remain on automatic pilot. Ajahn Sumedho says to adopt an "affectionate curiosity" towards them. 
Those who would like to delve deeper, must bring a journal. We will review the 5 hindrances from last Sunday, learn how to practice, reflect and explore them in a general way, and then more specifically, spend some time with each hindrance so that in selecting which of them tends to predominate for any of us in our daily lives and on the cushion, can observe in  the next week or so by noting in the journal any patterns, triggers and habits of reactivity that are spe…

The Eightfold Path-Alameda Sangha

Image
Dear Friends,
As we progress through life, we encounter all sorts of events that effect us in all sorts of way.  The Eightfold Path leads us confidently on through it all, no matter how we may suffer in response to events.  Beyond both fortune and the emotion it causes is the open awareness that holds it all, the realm of the dharma. Sunday night from 7 to 8:30, we'll talk about how the Path can guide us to this awareness each moment, whatever that moment holds.  I hope you and your friends will be there.
Warmly, Rebecca

Writer and Author Rae Turnbull discusses the recent opening for Keith Christie at The Orland Art Gallery

Image
Rae Turnbull noted artist and author, discusses her visit to .and involvement with, the recent opening for artist Keith Christie at The Orland Art Gallery on April 3rd 2015:

      "The reception for Keith Christie's exhibit was a great success! The Gallery was filled with people from the time the Gallery opened at three until the doors closed at 7. The West did indeed come alive in the brilliant paintings on the walls and 13 pedestals perfectly showcased the finely detailed bronzes.

Enjoying it all was the artist Christie himself, now in his eightieth year, wearing his signature western hat, and visiting with admirers.His recent stroke made the evening tiring for him, but as he left, he thanked the Gallery Director for doing such splendid justice to his work. Her reply: It was an honor!
