Winter 2021: Monthly Women's Rejuvenation Circle, with Candle Summers [Closed, Max. # Reached]

Primary tabs

As with all of our classes and events during COVID restrictions, this series will be offered on-line via Zoom.
Beginning on Friday, Jan. 29, let us join together the last Friday of each month, 6:30-8:00 pm, to reflect and inspire each other on the path to liberation.
What has been inspiring you lately in your readings and your life? We will share our love for the Dharma through readings by women in Buddhism. Candle Summers will guide a 30 min. sitting practice of Mindfulness and Metta, perhaps sharing some poems of The First Free Women: Poems of the Early Buddhist Nuns, for reflection. This event is open to anyone identifying as female.
Each person will have a chance to talk and share for 5 or so minutes, if each wants to. This group will be limited at first to 10 people who can commit to 4 meetings. We will see how it unfolds.  The format will be a talking stick style circle, each sharing, others listening deeply. (Please bring a special object to the circle.) 
We may branch out into a longer study of the Therigatha: Poems of the First Buddhist Women by Susan Murcott later in the year.

NOTE: The maximum # for this group has already been reached. If you want to be placed on a waiting list, please email Candle at:
We will start with meeting the last Friday of the month, for four months, beginning Friday, 1/29/2021. 
Suggested donation is $40 for the four meetings. No one turned away for lack of funds.
We are committed to making the exploration of practices and teachings of the Buddha relevant and accessible in today’s world. It is important to welcome all people of every age, ethnicity, cultural heritage and religious background, socio-economic group, ability, sexual orientation and gender identity.In this way we aspire to follow in the footsteps of the Buddha, who offered his teachings of awakening and freedom freely to everyone.
