Dharma Talk – Drew Weis

December 3
10:15 AM

We all are called to seek, explore, or simply wander. Some have found that water shows a way. We will explore water as a companion and guide to a deep and contemplative life.

For this talk, we will be discussing a reading. A PDF of the reading can be found here: Water Shows a Way, (large print version). Please read ahead of the talk.

Study Group: The Diamond Sutra

October 4 & 18, November 1 & 5
6:25 – 8:30 PM

We’ll study the Sutra using The Diamond That Cuts Through Illusion, a commentary by Thich Nhat Hanh. His translations are easy to follow and his commentaries relate the text directly to our real lives. We’ll take as much time as we need to engage fully with its teaching, enriching our study with other available translations and commentaries.

Led by Shodo Spring, Soto Zen priest and dharma heir of Shohaku Okumura. Shodo has practiced Zen for 30+ years, and is the host teacher of Mountains and Waters Zen Community.

9:00 – 11:00 AM on the third Saturday mornings, led by Mark Nunberg, senior teacher at Common Ground, and by members of NBMC sangha.
