What a planet!

Oh, to be a bee!

It's wonderful to interbe!

“Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion.”

― Thich Nhat Hanh

Dear Friends,

I hope you are well and enjoying this brand new day...and looking at all beings...especially yourself with the eyes of compassion.

We have an opportunity to gather on Sunday evening at 6 PM at the home of the Van Horns. (directions below) There will sitting/walking/sitting meditation, continue to share the Dharma. I hope you will be able to be there. We will be meeting next Sunday the 28th at our home.

REMINDER! There will not be an OI/Aspirant gathering this Saturday as many of the OI and aspirants will be at the Aldersgate Retreat. We will continue with our gatherings at Bell Street the third Saturday of June.

Also, this coming September will be the 25th anniversary of the Clear Heart Sangha. If you have ideas for what we might do to celebrate, please RSVP.

Also, if you are interested in being a part of our google group...so that you can communicate directly with other Sangha members....and get updates about Engaged Practice opportunities, please contact Cindy West at westnest5@gmail.com Thank you, Cindy! Carol B and Ann G have created a survey about ways our Sangha could help each other and our local communities. I sent the survey out before...but some said they were not able to open it. If you are interested, please contact Ann and she can send it to you directly amski1965@yahoo.com

And then of course, in order to expand our capacity to help, we need to water seeds of joy in ourselves. This should do it.

with much love and the joy of interbeing with you, Joanne
