Highlights for December 2015

Note: The Doane Stuart School building will be closed during vacation from December 19th to January 3rd. Therefore, our regular Sunday programs will not be held on December 20th and 27th and there will be no Tuesday practice on Dec 22nd and 29th. Regular programs will resume in early January, probably on Sunday, January 3rd. We wish everyone peace and happiness for the holiday season and the New Year.

During the break, there will be several programs of interest at Karma Triyana Dharmachakra: Lama Karma Drodhul teaching on “Transforming Difficulties Through the Six Perfections”, on Dec. 18-20, the Amitabha Retreat on Dec. 27-31, and First Light on Jan. 1, 2016. We encourage KTC members to take advantage of these programs.

Special Events:

On Sunday, December 6 we will have a Members’ Meeting. Your participation is very important. We will keep the agenda and the meeting short, but we need your input. An agenda will be sent out prior to the meeting.

On Saturday, December 12 we will hold a Holiday party from 4 to 7 pm at Marilyn’s. Call or email KTC for directions. Please try to bring a vegetarian dish or non-alcoholic drink to share.

On Tuesday, December 15th at 7PM, we will have a Guru Rinpoche Shower of Blessings Tsok practice. This is an offering of the 5 sense pleasures to Guru Rinpoche and all enlightened beings in which we share. Preparation is at 6:30PM and all are welcome. Please bring a vegetarian snack or drink, such as crackers, cookies, cheese, fruit, nuts, chips, candy, juice, or tea.
