    Tuesday Practice & Study Night

    Our current book is Dream Yoga written by Andrew Holocek who will be visiting and teaching at the Santa Rosa Shambhala Center on January 12th & 13th, more info here: santarosa.shambhala.org . No worries about homework -- of course you are encouraged to read this book at your pace at home, but the book is available at each class and is read together followed by discussion. If you have not touched on this topic before, it is vast. If you connect, the author will be here to further your interest in January at our sister Center in Santa Rosa.

    Meditation practice is enhanced by study. In this way, practice and study are like two wings of a bird – you need both in order to soar. To support the practice of meditation, we are offering Practice & Study Night every Tuesday evening, starting at 6:45 p.m. These contemplative events have proven very popular at other Shambhala Centers, and we hope that our community in Sonoma, in addition to our Sunday morning gathering, will also come to appreciate the special quality of evening group practice and study. Following meditation at 7:30 pm, we will be reading and discussing a chapter from a dharma book. 

    No prior meditation experience is required to attend and everyone is warmly welcome!  Though there is no charge to participate, as always, your generous contribution in any amount is greatly appreciated. 

    If you are planning to attend for the first time, please contact Carlos in advance at [email protected] to receive the week's reading assignment and study questions.

    Come join us for an evening of practice & study together in community!
