Saturday Morning Drop-In Group

wtfa

Our Saturday morning drop-in study group is continuing to read Pema Chodron’s When Things Fall Apart. We have two periods of zazen on Saturday morning, with a break in between for kinhin: 10 am – 10:25, and 10:35 – 11 am. At 11:15 am, we settle down at the table to read a chapter aloud together, and then we discuss how the reading manifests in our daily practice. Some of our group arrive at 11 am for the study group, some arrive at 10 am to include zazen in their morning, and we end at 12:30 pm. The suggested donation is £5, but we are very happy to welcome you whatever your offering!

The chapters we are reading for the next seven weeks are as follows:

  • September 7: Chapter 14, The Love That Will Not Die
  • September 14: Chapter 15, Going Against the Grain
  • September 21: Chapter 16, Servants of Peace
  • September 28: Chapter 17, Opinions
  • October 5: Chapter 18, Secret Oral Instructions
  • October 12: Chapter 19, Three Methods for Working with Chaos
  • October 19: Chapter 20, The Trick of Choicelessness
