    SUMMER PROGRAM

    FOR THE MONTHS OF JUNE, JULY AND AUGUST OUR SUNDAY MEETINGS WILL INCLUDE CHANTING AND MEDITATING TOGETHER, IN PERSON AND ON ZOOM. IN ADDITION, FOR ONE SUNDAY OF EACH MONTH WE WILL BE OFFERING A BOOK CONVERSATION.

    FOR THIS SUMMER WE HAVE CHOSEN ONE BOOK IN ORDER TO EXCHANGE IDEAS & EXPLORE IT DEEPLY.

    INSTRUCTIONS TO THE COOK ~A Zen Master’s Lessons in Living a Life that Matters

    Zen is not just about what we do in the meditation hall, but what we do in the home, the workplace, and the community. That’s the premise of this book: how to cook what Zen Buddhists call “the supreme meal”—life. It has to be nourishing, and it has to be shared. And we can use only the ingredients at hand.
    Inspired by the thirteenth-century manual of the same title by Dogen, the founder of the Japanese Soto Zen tradition,Instructions to the Cook describes the innovative business model Roshi Bernie Glassman developed to revitalize a poverty-stricken section of Yonkers, New York. Using his own story as a base, Glassman shows how social engagement can be used as a spiritual practice to promote both personal and societal transformation.

THE ENNEAGRAM & MINDFULNESS INTRODUCTION WORKSHOP

with Christine Bates

WILL BE POSTPONED UNTIL late 2021

The Enneagram of Personality is a model of the human 
psyche which is a typology of nine interconnected personality types.  The Enneagram model is used to help individuals gain insights into interpersonal dynamics, and in psychological and 
spirituality
 contexts as a path to reach higher states of being, essence, or enlightenment.  It is an elegant and robust model and aid to self-awareness and self-understanding.
 Christine Bates will guide us to use this model, with our mindfulness practice, to deepen our ability to be present, to let go of aspects of the past which trouble us, and to reduce our leaning into the future in ways that lead to anxiety and confusion.

 This newsletter will keep you posted when we reschedule

Please remember to support your Sangha as regularly as you can during these times of uncertainty and recent Covid-19 closures.

CONTRIBUTIONS


Viktor Frankl, Holocaust survivor and psychiatrist, said we don’t get to choose our difficulties, but we do have the freedom to decide how we will respond. During this crisis, we want to continue to be social investors, encouraging one another, especially those on the front lines and not forgetting those in need.

 

An offering from you to the Tubac Buddhist Meditation Center supports the essence of what we do: opening hearts, developing wisdom and cultivating compassion for the benefit of all beings.

We are all in this together. On behalf of our board, teachers and practitioners, thank you for supporting TBMC in whatever way that’s most meaningful to you.
