Support Meeting for Pauletta's Helpers this Sun, 6 pm

Dear Friends,

On June 9, Rebecca held the first support meeting for people helping Pauletta as she deals with her illness.  This Sunday, July 21, Deb Kerr and Rebecca will hold the second meeting.  After this, we plan to offer the meetings twice a month.  All will be held at 6 pm before the regular sangha meeting, at the Buena Vista United Methodist Church, 2311 Buena Vista Ave., Alameda.

These meetings offer techniques taught by Zen Hospice Project to make helping an opportunity for our own spiritual growth and to minimize suffering for all concerned.  Anyone who has helped Pauletta, or is considering helping, is encouraged to attend.

These meetings are confidential and respect every point of view.  It's a chance for Alameda Sangha members to grow as a spiritual community, and to give and receive support with everyone involved in Pauletta's care, whether they attend the sangha or not.
To maximize use of the short time we have, please arrive a few minutes before 6 pm.

If you'd like to attend this Sunday but can't, you can reply to this email to be put on a list of interested people.

We hope to see you there,
Rebecca and Deb
