Open Community Practice & Dharma Talk
with Peggy Gillespie
Wednesday, March 17, 2021; 7:00-8:30pm
Suggested donation: $7-25*
This dharma talk/discussion will be created the day I give it, in response to whatever is going on in my world that I think might bring us all together to contemplate our lives as they are. I will, no doubt, talk about what it means to be spontaneous, at the same time being prepared for whatever happens in our lives. Can these two states (spontaneity and preparation) co-exist in our lives and bring us more equanimity and calm. In other words, spontaneity has always conjured up in me the concept of being joyful and present and less focused on worrying about the future. Let's see if that turns out to be accurate!
Practice together remotely with other sangha members in a relaxed online atmosphere (7:00) and enjoy a dharma talk (7:35).
*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.
