“Nobody sees a flower - really -
it is so small it takes time -
we haven't time -
and to see takes time,
like to have a friend takes time.”
“A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in--
what more could he ask?
A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.”
Dear Friends,
I hope that you are well and remembering that we already have all of the conditions for happiness....a few flowers at our feet and above us the stars!
This is just a reminder that there will be a gathering at the home of the Van Horn's on Sunday evening at 6 PM
(information and directions are below) There will be sitting and walking meditation, a talk and a sharing of the Dharma.I hope you will be able to be there.
Also please remember...
There are many wonderful retreats being offered by the Brothers and Sisters at Blue Cliff Monastery. Please go tobluecliffmonastery.org to learn about them.
Please save Saturday, Sept. 27! It’s the annual RI Community of Mindfulness picnic!
The Mind Tamers are once again organizing a picnic for the entire Community of Mindfulness. Thank you Mind Tamers! It will take place on Saturday, September 27th at shelter #3 in the beautiful Colt State Park. We  will share a vegetarian potluck picnic and ask everyone to contribute games, stories, songs, poems, etc. It is always a lot of fun. I hope you all will be able to be with us. (I will pass on more info as I receive it)
The New London Sangha is planning a 2 day retreat for the 18th and 19th of October....save the weekend! More info to follow!
I hope you can join us for some or all of the above and in the meantime, I hope you are enjoying all of the miracles this beautiful season has to offer.
