Schedule ———– 7-7:10 pm Announcements 7:10-7:50 pm Seated Meditation 7:50-8 pm Break 8-9:00 pm Practice Circles Practice Circles, also known as Dharma Discussion, grew from the Native American Way of Council as a way to open to deeper understanding within our sanghas. They provide a safe way to drop down to the truth of our own hearts. Four principles help us keep the sense of depth and purpose present in the group: 1. Speaking from the heart. We speak the truth as we know it in our own experience, not referring to philosophical ideas or other people. We don't rehearse but stay present. 2. Listening from the heart. With vast openness and care, not interrupting even with our thoughts, we receive what is offered by another without judgement. The quality of our listening is what makes Practice Circles rich in meaning. We stay present to the wisdom of the circle. 3. Being lean of expression. We go to the heart of the matter, clearly and simply, without rambling or story telling. Practice Circles are a shared meditation in communication, and we recognize that everyone is connected, and every moment is precious. 4. In silence, we accept and honor different expressions and perspectives. We let go of crosstalk or advice, and sit with our own discomfort. We are wheelchair-accessible. In the spirit of doing no harm and out of respect for those with environmental illness, please refrain from wearing fragranced hair and body products. Please wear clothing that has been laundered and dried in fragrance free products. #Sacramento #Meditation
