I am resigning my job after next week (we will be there tonight) so will be able to be regular…therefore, feel we can put in our “two-cents” for future study. The first two sound extremely interesting and informative but we are drawn to the Thich Nhat Hanh book simply because we are not familiar with Chodron’s writing. So, if we can vote twice it would be no.’s 1 and 2.
Jim and Ann
I am still looking for suggestions on books that we might read and discuss. Please send them in.
Suggestions so far,
1. from Sue, I have Pema Chodron, "Start Where You Are -- A Guide to Compassionate Living" or she asked, "Anyone know of another Pema Chodron that they really liked?"
2. from me, Thich Nhat Hanh, "Going Home -- Jesus and Buddha as Brothers"
3. from me, Michael Singer, "The Untethered Soul -- the Journey Beyond Yourself"
For our reading/discuss this Thursday, we will do Chapter 1 from book #3 to give you a taste. And before we begin the meditations, I will do a short read from book #2 on the intentionality when one rings the bell and when one hears the ringing of the bell.
