Mindfulness Meditation with Robert Beatty, July 13- 25, 2014
At PIMC we have many opportunities to engage in karma yoga; the generous dedication of your time and energy toward benefiting this wonderful community.
If you are interested in volunteering with us here at PIMC, please consider attending our volunteer orientation. During the orientation you will receive valuable information about karma yoga and our current volunteer opportunities. March 16, after the Sunday Dharma talk and tea time (12:45pm - 1.15pm).
Kalyana Mitta (spiritual friends) Groups bring together members of the dharma community to study and share practice experiences in a friendly, supportive environment. They are formed to provide peer support as you deepen your practice and understanding of the Dharma. Groups are generally comprised of six to twelve members to afford an intimacy not always available in larger sitting groups.
It is late evening and I am alone in the Dharma Hall at PIMC. The Buddha and Quan Yin sit serenely upon their altars. A gentle light from the streetlights slants in through the windows. The only sounds arise from occasional cars traveling on Duke Street.
