Please join us for another edition of Buddhist Movie Night at Portland Insight Meditation Community (PIMC). We'll be watching "10 Questions for the Dalai Llama" on Saturday, Jan. 18, 2019. The screening will begin at 6:30pm.
This is a chance to come together as a community, enjoy Buddhist/mindfulness-themed cinema, and discuss how the material relates to our understanding of the Buddha and the Dharma.
Although the COVID-19 virus has caused PIMC to cease on-site events for now, we are still on track to have a working library of Buddhist resources. When we are able to gather together at our physical Dharma home again, we will have a re-opening celebration for the Barking Dog Library.
Come join us for an empowering and informative workshop that mindfully explores death, dying, and end-of-life planning. Engaging a trained End-of-Life Doula can provide the deep, compassionate listening, the supportive coaching, and the educational resources that can lead to things beginning to shift emotionally. Your planning can precipitate lines of communication opening, leading to emotional healing and wellbeing for yourself and people you love.
