Weekly Meditation and Teaching – Generosity and The Joy of Giving
September 18, 2018 @ 7:30 pm PDT - 9:00 pm PDT
Tonight’s topic for discussion will be Generosity and the Joy of Giving.
Facilitated by Sharon Allen.
IMSB invited members to explore the practice of generosity by using $50 to support a charitable project of their choosing. Some will report back to IMSB through tonight’s panel discussion and share their reflections and experiences from participating in the Joy of Giving Program.
Insight Meditation South Bay offers two weekly meditation groups—Tuesdays evenings we offer an open drop-in sitting group in Mountain View, and Thursdays we offer structured courses in Saratoga.
The Tuesday sitting group meets every Tuesday evening for a meditation and Dhamma talk in Mountain View. The principal teacher is Shaila Catherine and guest speakers are featured regularly. Thematic series are periodically presented, but whether or not a topic has been advertised in advance, Shaila or a guest teacher will lead the sitting and offer teachings. See also weekly sitting.
Newcomers are always welcome. To help newcomers get acquainted with mindfulness meditation and IMSB, a senior member or teacher offers a beginner’s orientation beginning at 6:30 on the first Tuesday of each month.
IMSB relies upon the generosity of participants to support our teachers and cover organizational expenses. Dana is a word in the ancient Pali language that describes donations, offerings and generosity. Two bowls will be available at an event to practice dana for the teacher and IMSB; we encourage you to give joyfully and generously, according to your resources and means. IMSB is a 501(c) (3) organization. All donations are tax deductible as permitted by law.
