Well Spring seems to be upon us (at least it was here this week) and it brings with it a period of new growth. In keeping with that theme, we will be finishing up our discussion on the Four Right Efforts. We will spend the month talking about the efforts of cultivation and development. The practice is to hold these efforts as lightly as we hold the efforts of restraint and abandonment. Our practice can bring stillness and well being, if we practice. As we have discussed over the last few weeks, if your intention is to see the truth about the way things are and/or what it means to be human, practice is a fairly natural process. We have talked about how to release our unskilled habits. Now we will talk about how to cultivate skillful responses. I hope you will come join us.

P.S. Our group list is pretty large and I want to make sure that this group is meeting the needs of all its members. If there is something you would like to see happen or changed – let me know so we can have a larger discussion about it. Also, if there is anything this group can do that will support or encourage your continued practice, let me know.
