Sunday Meditation and Inqury Feb 7
in Santa Rosa will be in the Ursula Hall in the Cecelia room down the corridor on the left by the main hall. The door by the carport entrance will be left open. The Ursula Hall is across from the main Angela Center building- It's address is 400 Angela Drive.
This time will be for meditation and inquiry. We will sit together in silence for 40 minutes followed by Inquiry where together we bring presence to the question(s), comments, and sharing that an individual expresses. Whereas Intellectual exploration is the process of sharing ideas, Inquiry is the process of meeting what is arising with presence. Though Amma Thanasanti Bhikkhuni will be facilitating everyone's clear focused attention and presence is required.
