Sangha Conversations are quarterly open discussions of all members who care to attend. Usually held on the 5th Wednesday evening of the month, a sangha leader may suggest a topic to get us started but these are open and "horizontal" gatherings. A way to hear from each other and be heard.
Suggested topic: let's consider the question of connection and intimacy in the wake of Ben Connolly's recent workshop. Please consider the questions: How are we connecting as Sangha? Where are we meeting that need and where are we not? What behaviors/practices/structures foster connection; what might stand in the way? What does connection/intimacy mean to you?
And remember that you are always welcome to bring up any topic, idea or concern and the sangha and leadership will listen with full attention.
For information about topics that may have been thought of for this next Sangha Conversation please contact the Guiding Teacher. Nomon Tim Burnett at firstname.lastname@example.org of 360-223-0687.
