At home for Crimmas: No Saturday Sit (12/23)

Hey Guys,

No Saturday Morning (12/23) Sit this week. We are three practice leaders down. One's out of town gettin' hitched. One is in and outta town because she just got hitched. One's got the flu.

But the sits will be back on next Tuesday (12/26) and thereafter. I'll be there personally to see that the sits go on.

Happy Holidays, y'all. Stay safe out there. The weather is nasty and the roads are crazy!

Rohatsu! The All Night Sit! This Friday at 9pm! (12/8)

What’s Rohatsu? Rohastu is the celebration of day of Buddha’s Enlightenment. How do we celebrate it? By sitting up all night, of course. Cuz’ that’s what he did. If you want what the Buddha got you do what the Buddha did.
 
But it’s not as hardcore as it sounds. Just simple unstructured sitting.  They’ll be food to eat and a place to nap. You can get up, walk around, eat and sleep when you have need. After all, it’s just sitting. And it’s just staying up all night. You’ve done both those things before, right?
 
Anyway, if you want to join us Buddhas-To-Be meet us at
 
The Clubhouse, directly across from
8588 Sawyer Brown Rd,
Nashville, TN 37221
 
We’ll have a sign out front and a swimming pool in the back. So you can’t miss us. But in case you do, IM Steph on Facebook or call 615-714-4656. We’ll navigate you there.
 
We start at 9pm on Friday and we will finish around 7am on Saturday. Come for as little or as much as you like. Come when you can, leave when you gotta, like always.
 
Towards the end, they’ll be some brief readings about the night that bottom dropped out on Buddha. But otherwise, we’ll just strike a bell once an hour and you’ll be left to sit with your much weirder and looser night-time thoughts that you rarely get to witness.
 
$15 bucks on Paypal (see our donation page) or in person if you can swing it. Ok if you can’t.
 
Let’s do what people as crazy as Buddha will being doing all over the world Friday. Sit up all night breathing and see what happens.
 
Lurves ~ Steph
