REGULAR MEETINGS RESUME WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 19
Our regular group meetings will resume on Wednesday, October 19, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. at OpenEye Studio, 875 4th Street, San Rafael, CA (east end of 4th St., between Cijos and Lootens, on the south side, above Sacred Tibet shop).
We will then meet on the first and third Wednesday of each month.
Our classes begin with a short meditation. We will begin studying “Self Knowledge”, a text from the Indian Advaita Vedanta tradition, written by Adi Śankaracarya. “Self Knowledge” (Atma Bodha) is a masterful unfoldment of the nature of the true self as limitless awareness and being.
Everyone is welcome.
I hope to see you there!
A new weekly group is starting on Monday, April 4, 2016, in San Rafael.
We will meet on Mondays at 7:00-8:30 p.m. at OpenEye Studio, 875 4th Street, San Rafael, CA (east end of 4th St., between Cijos and Lootens, on the south side, above Sacred Tibet shop).
In April, we will be focusing on Natural Mind Dzogchen meditation and teachings. This will include general discussion of Dzogchen and classes on the “Heart Essence of the Khandro,” a Bonpo (indigenous Tibetan) Dzogchen text containing teachings of 30 enlightened Bon lineage women.
All are welcome!
Offered freely; donations welcome.
This group will be replacing the Urban Meditation group that met Mondays at the same location. Urban meditation co-teacher Kisei Jeff Bickner will be forming a new Zen group in the Fairfax area in the near future.
That’s right. I’ll be teaching in Berkeley this Thursday night, August 21, 2014, at the invitation of East Bay Open Circle. Open Circle is an open and non-sectarian group that hosts various interesting spiritual teachers, most of a nondual orientation, at various locations around the Bay Area. They invited me to teach this week in Berkeley. Here are the details:
When: Thursday, August 21, 2014 7:00-9:00 p.m.
Location: Chochmat Halev 2215 Prince St., Berkeley, CA
Cost: Suggested donation of $10-$20; no one turned away for lack of funds.
This should be an interesting and fun change of venue.
I hope to see some of you there.
All the best,
Hal will be in India and on retreat until mid-August 2014.
Sending prayers and wishes for peace and liberation for all!
