in the Sarana Kuti
9:00am to 4:00pm
Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Stanislaus County
2172 Kiernan Ave., Modesto, CA
In this daylong workshop, we invite our two communities: UUFSC and IMCV, to meet one another and to explore Right Communication – how we can use mindfulness practice to guide us in how we can skillfully communicate in all of our relationships. If you’re not a member of UUFSC or IMCV, you don’t need to worry – we are open communities that are welcoming to anyone who is interested in the teachings we offer.
Please come with a story from the book, Buddhist Boot Camp, by Timber Hawkeye or a story from a Buddhist book that significantly changed or in some way altered your perspective of life in a meaningful way.
We’ll explore practicing Right Communication using periods of silent meditation which can strengthen our ability to stay present and non-reactive in listening and speaking.
This day is freely offered to all. Donations are gratefully accepted to support the UUFSC and IMCV. Please bring a vegetarian potluck dish to share for lunch, if you would like. Chairs and some cushions will be available.
