Dharma Talk with Jean Esther - Feb 10

Meeting Life on Life’s Terms with the Heart of a Buddha


Meeting Life on Life’s Terms with the Heart of a Buddha

Open Community Practice & Dharma Talk 

with Jean Esther

Wednesday, February 10, 2021; 7:00-8:30pm

Suggested donation: $7-25*

The Buddha instructed monastics and lay people alike to  frequently reflect on the reality of aging, illness and death. This may have unfairly earned him a reputation of being a nihilist or of being overly focused on suffering.

Let’s explore together whether or not these reflections lead us into despair or as the Buddha intended; leading us onward to an ‘unshakable liberation of mind and heart’ and a capacity to fully meet the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows of our lives.

Practice together remotely with other sangha members in a relaxed online atmosphere (7:00) and enjoy a dharma talk (7:35). Please join Jean for meditation, Dharma talk and group discourse. Beginners and Experienced Students Welcome!

*If you have the means, please consider a donation tonight. We operate entirely on the sangha's acts of generosity. Your donation will help us meet the minimum payment for the teacher and provide some support to the ongoing operations of the sangha as well. Everyone is welcome at all of our events, regardless of ability to donate. Therefore, those who donate more are helping to make the center accessible to all.


A note about dana for Wednesday night Dharma talks: Our teachers receive 60% of the dana given for Wednesday night Dharma talks, as they traditionally have. That said, since the pandemic, dana given for Dharma talks has decreased. As a result, IPV now provides teachers with a minimum guaranteed amount. If you wish to give additional dana solely to the teacher for this Dharma talk, there will be an opportunity later in the process below.

You can give online or send checks to InsightPV, 116 Pleasant Street, Suite 242, Easthampton, MA 01027. FYI: we check for mail once per week.
