Sun 7-8:30pm Freedom through the Precepts

Dear Friends,

When we look at the Five Precepts for lay people, they can seem like a list of chores, or admonitions to do things. There can be resistance to thinking about our conduct and how we would have to act to follow the precepts perfectly.

The precepts are actually gateways to freedom, offering us guidelines for minimizing suffering. They're like hiking poles that can help us up or down steep hills and keep us on the trail. This Sunday, Nov. 9, I hope you'll join us to contemplate the way these suggestions for wise action can make life easier for all beings.

With metta,
Rebecca
