The Coming of the Light
Sunday, December 20; 12:00 - 2:00pm
As we approach the longest night, Winter Solstice, 2020, I like to remember the Buddha's encouragement to "be a light unto yourself". He was pointing to the light of wisdom, clarity and kindness that is the potential within each of us, and how important it is to nurture that light and let it shine for our own benefit and for the benefit of all beings. In support of that work, I will be reading from The First Free Women - Poems of the Early Buddhist Nuns and exploring the teachings of these awakened women, who came from all walks of life and endured all kinds of struggles on their path to awakening. The Path is always right here, let us walk it together for awhile.
