Advice Not Given: A Guide To Getting Over Yourself
By Mark Epstein, MD
Please join us for another edition of Buddhist Movie Night at Portland Insight Meditation Community (PIMC). We'll be watching "Far From Heaven" on Saturday, Feb. 15, 2020. 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.
PIMC will be holding a gardening volunteer party to get the landscaping around the building ready for summer. Lunch will be provided (take-out, based on the wishes of the folks who show up).
This is a great opportunity to get to know other people in our wonderful sangha. It'll be a short, focused session, ending in early afternoon - early enough that you still have time to find other ways to enjoy the rest of your Saturday.
Please join Gregory Maloof for the next First Saturday day-long retreat on March 7th, from 9am - 4pm. The theme for this retreat will be the art of Body Scanning practice. Amidst a day of peace, ease and silence we will explore how to use awareness of the body to cultivate concentration, decrease painful emotions and painful physical sensations, and cultivate the enlightenment factors of joy and tranquility.
