Lojong is a 12th-century Tibetan practice that is Mind Training for Compassion, done on the full moon to embrace new beginnings—the end of one cycle and the beginning of another.
Books Worth Talking About
(Two options—in-person on four Sunday afternoons OR virtual via Zoom on four Wednesday evenings.)
A four-week “book club” for women who don’t have time to read books. Information from four books containing life-guiding wisdom from the Buddhist tradition will be shared; articles and videos related to each will be presented. There is no need to read these books. Discussion facilitated by Susan Massaro McFarland.
Fee is $40 and all proceeds will be donated to the Grand Rapids Buddhist Temple.
Registration deadline is October 14 and groups are limited in size.
For more information, download the book club flier or to register, email Susan at www.susanmcfarland.com.
