This Sunday: Taking Refuge

Dear Friends,

Last week we looked at the opportunities to be found in those moments when mindfulness appears to have "failed."  This week we'll take the opposite approach and look at how to re-gain serenity (or at least, functionality) when we find ourselves overwhelmed by events and our reactions to them.

Buddha offered his followers three refuges which they took formally even before beginning their instruction in practice or the dharma.  What does it mean, though, to "take refuge?"  How do we do it, and what does it do?

Come Sunday and find out.

Best wishes,
