the Tao Practice
Cultivating the Tao: Tao Te Ching A practice series
with Andrew Palmer, Sensei As we did last year, we'll
again ease our way into autumn by spending time exploring,
enjoying and abiding with a Taoist classic - the Tao
Te Chingthis time around. This is not a study group
but more of an inviting of the words and teachings
into our lives, keeping company with them, allowing
them to infuse our days and nights, and coming together
regularly to share our experiences and discoveries.
Rather than work straight thought the chapters, each
week I'll provide selections sharing a common theme
that we will read and re-read, take for a walk through
our lives, play with, and notice what happens when
we simply welcome them in. The opening lines of YongJia
Xuanjue's Song of Realizing the Way come to mind when
I think of the spirit of this practice series: There
is someone at peace, walking in the Tao, beyond theories,
not fleeing delusion, not seeking truth. Any version
of the Tao Te Ching will do. I've been working primarily
with Red Pine's translation while looking into others
as well, and will provide resources you can use in
addition to any version you may already have. The
initial selections will be sent out a week ahead of
our first gathering, along with suggestions for working
with them, so please sign up by August 15.Saturdays,
August 22-September 26 10 a.m. to Noon at The Palmer

Tuesday Mornings Sittings
and friends of the Wet Mountian Sangha, for those who
have been looking for a practice opportunity but are
burdened with the hustle-and-bustle of the daily-grind
schedule, Wet Mountain Sangha is expanding Open Hall
to include Tuesday mornings. Morning meditation
has been a foundation for daily practice across traditions
and it is with this spirit that WMS invites anyone and
everyone to take up the path and join us at the Zendo
(for open hall) from 6:30 am- to 7:30 am at the CIP.
Arrive a little early if you wish for orientation or
to help with the set up. It is okay to quietly arrive
or leave at 7:00.
