"It is by taking good care of your breath, of your body, of your feelings, that you can build a good community."
-Thich Nhat Hanh

Thank you to Karlen for guiding the dharma discussion on Monday to prepare us better for the sutra study materials this week. Also, thank you Linda for helping with Wednesday morning sit.
Wednesday night sutra study at 7pm PST, we will focus on awareness of the mind. Please watch the video lecture, guided meditations, a practice guide, and suggested readings.
