Dear Friends,

 

We ask for your help in our mindful work on Saturday June 22, 2013.

Please bring work gloves, wear casual clothing, and be prepared to work outside.

Many of the projects we work mindfully on during our Community Workdays are landscaping.

We will begin gathering at 8:45am outside the Ocean of Peace Hall to sing some songs and divide into groups to start our joyful service. There will be a break and snacks around 11am. At 12:30pm we will enjoy a mindful picnic meal together. In the afternoon at 3pm there will be a DVD Dharma Talk by our teacher if you would like to stay behind to listen.

Our work becomes joyful service of the heart as we allow ourselves to work wholeheartedly, in harmony and not in a rush. You can read about the practice of working meditation on our website.
