Wednesday, July 8, 2020
Open Sitting 7:00-7:30 / Dharma Talk 7:35-8:30

Suggested donation: $7-25*

As the next decade begins, we are coming into a world that is manifesting huge amounts of greed, hatred, and delusion. We are going to need help navigating this coming year and beyond; we are going to need a strong and resilient heart. During a six month series of talks, we will explore the Buddha’s practices to develop this heart. Each month we will look at beautiful mind/heart states that the Buddha encourages us to nurture, including the four divine abodes (Brahmaviharas), forgiveness and gratitude.

The quality of equanimity is the great balancer to the heartwarming practices of loving kindness, compassion, and appreciative joy. This practice explores letting go of any contraction or demands that the heart has accumulated during the strengthening of our connections with others. By releasing our efforts to control, we find the heart settling more and more fully into reality, ever expanding and becoming boundless.

Sit together with other sangha members in a relaxed atmosphere and enjoy a Dharma Talk by Rae Houseman. In the interest of encouraging generous support for our teachers and meeting InsightPV's expenses, there will be a suggested donation with 60% going to the teacher and 40% to the center.

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.

*As always, this donation is completely voluntary and is a personal decision. Please know that accessibility is very important to us; everyone is welcome at all  of our events regardless of ability to donate.
