Class: Opening to Joy (Drop in)
- 8:30 PM at Lamont Dharma House, (1719 Lamont St., NW, Washington, DC, 20010) (Map It)
Opening to Joy in Our Practice
Joy can be overlooked as an integral part of the spiritual journey. The First Noble Truth says that there is suffering in life. As much as this truth must be seen and acknowledged, this path points to the fact that suffering is not enough. The Dalai Lama points out that the purpose of life is to see and experience beauty, goodness and joy. In these times of stress and complexity, it is easy to forget our deepest intentions. It is easy to get so caught up that we fail to see moments of beauty and joy.
Join us for an exploration of joy and how we might let joy take its rightful place on and off the cushion by turning toward, encouraging and bringing it to life.
The session will begin with a period of silent meditation, then the dharma talk and afterwards brief time for Q and A.
The session is from 7-8:30 p.m. If you arrive late please wait to enter until the meditation has ended.
