For those joining us this Saturday, March 7th 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, Sensei Al will introduce and interview a special guest, David R. Loy, Ph.D. David is a renowned Zen teacher, philosopher, and bestselling author of Money, Sex, War, Karma: Notes for a Buddhist Revolution (2008), The World is Made of Stories (2010), and most recently, A New Buddhist Path: Enlightenment, Evolution, and Ethics in the Modern World (2015), in addition to several previous scholarly books.
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.
Two Helpful Reminders:
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!
Please help us to accomodate our members who are chemically sensitive to fragrances or other scented products. Thank you for not wearing perfume, aftershave, or similar products.
