For those joining us this Saturday, July 5, for our 1st Saturday of the month Upaya Sangha of Tucson meeting, we will meet from 10:00 am to noon, and our meeting will include brief sutra chanting, participant check-in, announcements, sitting meditation (Zazen), and a brief tea break. After this, since Sensai Al Genkai Kaszniak will be away from Tucson, sangha member Deborah Mayaan will provide a presentation on “How to stop blaming yourself and others, and shift other thought patterns, in 59 easy steps,” sharing excerpts from the book Training in Compassion: Zen Teachings on the Practice of Lojong, by Norman Fischer, former co-abbot of the San Francisco Zen Center.
If this is your first time to join us, we meet at Tucson Community Meditation Center (TCMC), 1231 East Edison St., one block south of Grant, just west of Mountain, on the north side of the street. We meet the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month. There are plenty of zafus (meditation cushions) and chairs.
Parking reminder: It’s important to the future of TCMC to observe mindful parking by not parking on the same block as the Center and by leaving an empty parking space in front of the homes on the neighboring blocks. Please reserve TCMC driveway parking for people who cannot walk far. Thanks!
