Calm Abiding in Community

April 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

When doing the work of justice and peace, we require a rootedness of purpose which helps sustain our attention and channel ourselves towards the good. A growing body of research shows that mindfulness can promote empathy, reduce stress and anxiety, help address depression and addiction, and teach us to respond with intention whenever we come up against difficulty. Join us for dinner and a conversation about the practice of shamatha, a form of mindfulness meditation which means “calm abiding” or “tranquility.” Sergio Moreno, a hospital chaplain and meditation instructor at the Rime Buddhist Center, will guide us through the practice together. For dinner we’ll have a salad bar, so bring a topping or side to share!
