Dear Friends,

I hope you are all well and happy and enjoying this summer evening.

This is a reminder that there will be a gathering on Sunday evening at 6 PM at the home of Cindy and John West. (directions below) There will be sitting/walking/sitting meditation...readings from Thay's book "Reconciliation" and Cindy will facilitate a sharing of the Dharma. I hope you can be with us.

There will be a meeting of the Generations Sangha on Saturday morning from 10-11:30 at the Westminster Unitarian Church in East Greenwich. This is a gathering for all ages. This week we will focus on "Coming to Our Senses". There will be a gathering for everyone, with some singing and guided practice and then the children will enjoy a program for them  while the adults enjoy a sitting and sharing the Dharma. from 11:30- 12 there will be snacks for everyone who can stay. I hope you are able to be with us.

Also, there is an opportunity to be with us for a weekend retreat in October. The New London Community of Mindfulness is offering a retreat at Senexet House in Woodstock, CT from Oct 16-18.

Lots of opportunities to be joyfully together....we are very blessed!

We live about 2 miles from URI.  From rt 138, go north onto Old North Rd.  (across the street from big sign ““Kingston Hill Store  Books  Used and Rare””.  Also, just a smidge west of the 138/108 traffic light).  Old North Rd starts off as a one way, continues on as a two way street, and finally ends as a T.  You will see our corner property from there.  Go left at the T (Old North Rd meets Stoneyfort Rd), and then a quick right onto Plantation Dr.  We are the first home on the right (2nd driveway is easiest).  Come on in the side door (porch/kitchen)!
