For those joining us this Saturday, April 18th for our 3rd Saturday of the month Upaya Sangha of Tucson meeting, we will meet from 10:00 am to noon. Our meeting will include brief sutra chanting, check-in, announcements, sitting meditation (Zazen), and a brief tea break. After this, since Sensei Al will be at a retirement celebration being organized for him at the U of A, Christine Johnson will discuss a writing of David Loy’s on the nature of the universe, its inhabitants, and his views on the meaning of it all. If you own David Loy’s recent book, “A New Buddhist Path: Enlightenment, Evolution and Ethics in the Modern World”, from which the reading is taken, the “Meaning of it All” begins on page 97.
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.
A few 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! Also, please help us to accommodate our members who are chemically sensitive to fragrances or other scented products. Thank you for not wearing perfume, aftershave, or similar products.
