Sunday Talks & Gatherings

On Sundays, our free programs are:  a chant from 5:00 – 5:45 PM, tea and light refreshments (5:45 – 6:00 PM), and a free Dharma talk from 6:00 – 7:00 PM. On the last week of each month, we hold a Women’s Meditation and Practice group instead of the talk. 

5–5:45 PM / Chant 

Approximately thirty minutes of chanting is followed by ten to fifteen minutes of silent sitting. The mantra is chanted in a slow melodious way that helps deepen meditation and activate inner healing. Cost: Free. 

6:00 – 7:00 PM / Dharma Talk or Gathering

August 18 – Santosh Philip on “Body Psychology”

The movements of the body and of physical feelings intimately relate to movements within the psyche. In this talk, Nyingma Institute instructor Santosh Philip discusses the relationship between psyche and body, giving practical suggestions on how to shift physical postures and feelings to increase well-being.

August 25  – Women and Meditation

The Nyingma Women’s Meditation and Practice Group will meet regularly at this time, 6–7 pm, on the last Sunday of each month during the summer in lieu of the regular Dharma talk. Tea and refreshments, along with discussion of selected topics of interest, will follow practice. This is an excellent opportunity to build community and share interests and study.
