with Venerable Dr. Pannavati
Public Dharma Talk
10 - 11 am
In the Buddha Hall at 300 Page Street
1 - 4:30 pm
In the Conference Center at 308 Page Street
Relationships form based on many factors. Underlying our rational assumptions of who is "friend" or "enemy" or what types of people we "like" or "dislike" are subtle factors, karmic influences, and unrecognized perceptions based on the six senses. Using stories from the sutras and our personal experiences, we will dissect the phenomenon of "encounter." Tools will be discussed to assess and build relationships that nurture our spiritual aspiration and deepest stillness, yet without considering anyone unworthy of our full attention.
This half-day workshop will alternate between discussion and reflection, building upon the morning dharma talk (although the workshop can stand alone). Everyone is welcome to join us for the Dharma talk in the morning and also to register for the practice afternoon with Ven. Dr. Pannavati Bhikkuni. Fees:
$50; $45 current SFZC members; $40 limited income. Some scholarships are available; see About Registration, Scholarships, and Cancellations. No one turned away for lack of funds. To Register:
