SenGen Holiday Celebration Tuesday December 11, 3-4:30 @ DDC
Our final 2018 session will be held on Tuesday December 11, 3-4:30. The 4th Tuesday falls on Christmas Day, and we will not be meeting that day.
Facilitators will be Ross and Ellen Park, and we will celebrate the joy of our fellowship with our annual Holiday Party. It will be a time to reflect on the passage of another year in our lives and another year of our Kalyana Mitta SenGen group. Kalyana Mitta means Spiritual Friends, which we surely have become as we have shared so much in the process of examining Aging, Illness and Death, and especially the Joy and Wisdom that are manifested as we grow older.
You might also think about these 3 questions:
1. What changes, anticipated or otherwise, have occurred in your life in the past year, and how have you reacted to them?
2. If you were to give yourself one gift this season what would that be and why?
3. What intentions, if any, have you set for the coming year?
We will start by sharing our reflections, and follow with hot chocolate, tea, Ross’s pastries and a plate of nibbles you may wish to bring - nuts, cookies, fruit - keeping in mind that last year we had much more food than we could indulge in! Bringing just yourself is appreciated.
Our plan for early 2019 is to use as inspiration the recently published, amazing book by Ram Dass and Mirabai Bush: Walking Each Other Home: Conversations on Loving and Dying.
Maria’s has stocked this book for us, and if you would like to purchase it, mention the Durango Dharma Center Book Club to receive a 15% discount. We will also place one in the DDC Library. A bibliography of other books we had considered can be found below.
With deep Metta and Gratitude for an insightful year,
Ellen Park and the SenGen Facilitators
