Morning Sun Online Day of Mindfulness: From the World of Confusion to the Place of Freedom and Inclusiveness Sunday, June 21st 10:00am-3:00pm, online Zoom MorningSun Community wholeheartedly welcomes you to spend a day of mindfulness in our beloved community. This is an online Day of Practice together with a ceremony to honor and practice with the present struggles and awakening of our society, namely many deaths and hardships caused by racism and covid-19.
No matter where we are in the world, what is happening in our lives, we can put down our projects, individual schedules, and sense of isolation and grief, as we drop deeply into the spirit of community presence together.
We are grateful to have senior Dharma Teacher Fern Dorresteyn and OI members Aurora Leon and Sara Henry share their experiences from their hearts and compassion. They will convey how this time of suffering can be a profound opportunity for deepening our spiritual practice and strengthening our capacity to be compassionately present with our suffering.
These crises of racism and covid-19 are experienced both collectively and individually. This is a rare chance to heal ourselves and our collective lives, touch true compassion with each other, and still experience the interbeing of life. Now is the time to practice as one spiritual family, and journey deeper into the heart of our practice than ever before. Registration: http://morningsuncommunity.org/event/online-day-of-mindfulness-2020-06-20/ Questions: Sara Henry, email@example.com All dana of this day will be given to Susu Healing Collective’s BIPOC Farming and Land Fund.
DAILY EMPATHY CIRCLES with Brother Phap Man Mondays - Fridays, 4:00 - 5:30pm EST, Zoom One of the gifts of this crisis and this extraordinary time is the recognition of our need for connection. Empathy Circles offer a safe place to feel what we're feeling, and to embrace each other with care and support. We acknowledge that many of us are experiencing pain, anxiety, stress, and other strong emotions. Through the practice of active listening and reflecting, we cultivate deeper understanding and compassion. Connecting to the elements of joy and gratitude, we grow our capacity to hold more and more of our experience. All are welcome to join this exploration in healing and mutual aid.
