Metta, Mind Training and Wise Speech for the Holidays, at Alameda Sangha this Sunday, November 20, 2011 from 7-9 pm

Hello Everyone,

It's that fun time of year again - where we tend to do too much and feel pressured under expectations of the holiday season. So I reflected on 3 important teachings of the Buddha to offer as tools to help us all get through it in a more harmonious fashion than we have in the past.

The emphasis will still be on Wise Speech since we will be doing a lot of speaking during this time as we come into contact with family and friends that we haven't seen much of at other times of the year. The other two teachings are more background practices to really bring support to your self-care regime and plan of action to respond more skillfully to situations than has happened in the past.

Perhaps you have had recurring reactive tendencies in your social holiday interactions and wish you could have handled things differently. Come on Sunday and find out how you can begin to transform your holiday experience into a more heartfelt and loving interrelating.

Hope to see most of you there and don't forget to bring a friend and/or family member.

with metta,
