While we will pick up where the Thursday Night Meditation Group leaves off, it is my intention to promote a more wholeistic and harmonious practice based in Buddhism, Mindfulness and Compassionate Action, all of which have been the primary components of my Priest Studies these past 3 years under the direction of Sensei Tony Stultz of the Blue Mountain Lotus Society.
The Blue Lotus Meditation Group will essentially remain a sitting group, with monthly Liturgy, occasional guest speakers, and perhaps a Buddhist movie night and/or a Buddhist book discussion night. It is my intention to serve the community in any way I can through the Buddha, the Dharma, the Sangha, as a fully ordained Priest.
I am also excited to begin a partnership with the Dickinson College Women's Center & Center for Diversity Initiative. They have been welcoming and open to my dreams of sharing the Dharma, and I look forward to perhaps joining in their ideas and activities for serving the College community, as well as the greater Carlisle community. I am excited to get started working on cooperative ventures and foresee a fruitful partnership.
Our new home is Landis House, at the corner of West Pomfret & South College Street, in Carlisle.
Our sitting schedule will remain as it has for the past 4 years: 6 p.m. Thursday nights, beginning August 19.
There should be plenty of parking on the street, and our entrance to the House is on North College Street.
Hope to see you there!
