BRIEF: Sharing the Dharma Day to focus on Chodron’s new book

Sravasti Abbey will resume its monthly Sharing the Dharma Day on March 10.

The day's topic, ““Precious Human Life and How to Use It Wisely,” will focus on teachings from Abbess Venerable Thubten Chodron's latest book, “Don't Believe Everything You Think,” which is a contemporary commentary on a well-loved text of the Tibetan tradition that teaches how to transform life’s ups and downs into material for spiritual awakening.

The event will also include a guided meditation, a vegetarian potluck and a facilitated discussion.

The first session begins at 9:45 a.m.

There is no charge, though offerings — of food for the community and/or financial gifts — are welcome.

For information call 509-447-5549 or email office.sravasti@gmail.com.
