There are two great events coming in August.
On August 22, renowned dharma teacher, journalist and performer Wes Nisker will be leading a daylong on How To Be An Earthling-- Mindfulness Meditation and Modern Science: A Path of Self-Liberation and Amazement. Wes was my first and most influential dharma teacher, and I highly recommend his light and humorous yet profound teachings.
The daylong will be at Buena Vista UM Church from 10 - 4 on Saturday August 22. See the Alameda Sangha website (below) for details, and to register.
On August 23 we will have our annual Sangha Picnic in McKinley Park, just down the street from the church, starting at about 5 p.m. More details will be forthcoming. This is always a wonderful time of enjoying our warm and lovely community, along with amazing potluck food.
