Way Seeking Mind Talk
Sunday, November 3rd 2pm

This year the Dharma Center has begun a series of Way Seeking Mind Talks given by senior practitioners in our sangha.  The Way Seeking Mind Talk comes from the Zen tradition and is generally an initial talk given by practitioners to describe their journey to Buddhist practice.  It can also be a talk given by seasoned practitioners of any Buddhist tradition to reflect with the sangha on what is alive in their practice now.  It is meant to be a more informal and personal talk than a traditional dharma talk. 

The Way Seeking Mind talks continue in November with one of our Center’s founders, Robert Pryor.  Since 1971 he has been following the path of the Buddha and focusing his life on the Dharma. He led the Antioch Buddhist Studies Program in Bodh Gaya, India, for many years, and was fortunate to study there with outstanding Buddhist teachers. Robert will share his experiences along the way, and how these have impacted his present orientation toward practice.

All are invited.
