Sangha Cancelled and Help Wanted - October 19

multi-colored pebbles in the shape of a heart on the beachDear Friends, I hope that this message finds you well and happy and at ease in mind and body. Joanne and Richard unexpectedly need to cancel this Sunday's meeting of the Clear Heart Sangha. But there are a few announcements that they would like to pass along.

There will be an OI/aspirant gathering at the Bell Street Chapel in Providence on Saturday, October 20, at 9:45 right after the meeting of the Radiant Bell Sangha which meets from 8-9:30 AM. There will be a recitation ceremony for the 14 Mindfulness Trainings, followed by a Dharma sharing. Ann will facilitate . . . and the meeting is open to Aspirants, Order members, and anyone who is interested in learning more about our practice.

The 2013 Camp Aldersgate Retreat Organizing Team is looking for any interested in helping plan this spring's retreat with Joanne (May 17-21). The team will probably meet once in early December, then monthly from March through June, most likely on a Saturday morning. If you would like to be on this team, please let Ann know at

Please also let Ann know if there is a particular topic you would like to see addressed at this retreat.


The website Bodhisattvas who create and take care of are looking for other Bodhisattvas who might be able, at some point, to help with editing the audio tapes of some of the Dharma talks which I have given. If you have had some experience with sound editing computer programs and would like to help, please contact Shana at (Please mention “audio help” in the subject line.)

Ann is looking for those who would like to be on a call list for helping when those in the Clear Heart Sangha need help. You can contact her at

With metta and wishes that you'll know deep peace, Jennifer
