The Sangha is Very Pleased
To Announce the Return
Of Tim Geil for an Evening
Of Meditation and Teaching.
He will Join us on Zoom,
Saturday May 29th at 7 PM.
Tim is the Co-Guiding Teacher of the Seattle Insight Meditation Society, and a long time friend and mentor to many Sangha members. An Invitation Link will be sent to the mailing list or may be obtained by writing us.
Tim will lead a period of meditation and discuss the Three Characteristics. He writes:
The Buddha taught that all conditioned things have three characteristics. They are insubstantiality (dukkha), impermanence (annica), and non-self (annata). When we forget or overlook these characteristics, we create unnecessary suffering in our lives. Dharma practice supports us in seeing deeply into the Three Characteristics, and learning to live in harmony with them. Ultimately, we discover what is unconditioned.
Please join us for this Saturday evening session of meditation with instructions, a dharma talk and questions and answers. Here is the program. We hope you can attend.
7:00 Meditation, 7:40 Break, 7:45 Dharma Talk, 8:30 Questions and Answers, 9:00 End
