Protection and Blessing on the Spiritual Path
Open Community Practice & Dharma Talk
with Rebecca Bradshaw
Wednesday, April 7, 2021; 7:00-8:30pm
Suggested donation: $7-25*
How can our Dharma practice remind us of the blessings in our life? What kind of dharma protections can we access for support? Contrary to dominant thinking in American culture, we know that we can’t do it all alone, so how can we receive the support and protection that allows us to persevere and thrive in our practice and in our showing up in the world? Sharing of the Mangala Sutra on blessings will be included in the evening.
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.
