This Sunday: Interest

Dear Friends,

I'm looking forward to seeing you all again Sunday 7-8:30, when our topic for the evening will be the 3rd Factor of Awakening, Interest.

It would probably be easier for everyone to start meditating if they just felt that watching their breath was really interesting.  We have an advantage if we able to summon interest in whatever we're engaged in.  This week, we'll look at ways to do that.

We'll also explore an aspect of interest that is useful in our sitting and our life practice.  Investigation is the occupation of the mind that roots out the significance of our experience.  There are techniques to enhance this mental activity so it will lead us to wisdom and peace.

Please come, bring friends and questions -- whatever interests you.

With metta,
Rebecca
