Everyone seemed pleased with the first offering of the School for Contemplative Practices. Jon Yaffe led us through an overview of the principles of Buddhism and then into a couple of periods of meditation, one a guided meditation about impermanence, and then later into a period of silent meditation.
Some left before the light lunch of soup, bread, and salad but those who stayed enjoyed a spirited conversation about the issues raised by the experience and even into the complexities of attachment.
We don’t have a firm date for the next class. I hope to be able to announce it this next week.
