Wednesday Dharma Gatherings - open to community and newcomers - draw on the sangha - the third jewel of Buddhism - as a refuge and support for waking up. Depending on the week a presenter might share a key point from the classical Buddhist teachings, a memorable passage from a dharma text, a challenge or inspiration they are working with in their own path, or an exploration of putting the teachings into daily life.
The view of Shambhala is about whole-hearted engagement in life, i.e meditation in action, not separating one's life into spiritual and secular. So how do we dig in fully and apply the teachings to our everyday lives? What can we learn from one another on the path?
