The first segment of the Bodhisattva Precept Study Group, Aug–Dec, is complete. It was an intimate and lively sharing and reflecting on the precepts in our everyday lives. The second segment begins Jan. 15. Everyone is welcome, and this is a good time for newcomers to join in.

The meetings take place on the third Wed of every month, 5-6:30, before dharma seminar, online on Zoom.

  • January 15:  Overview/Review and "Not to kill but to nurture life"
  • February 19: "Not to steal but to receive what is offered as a gift"
  • March  25: "Not to misuse sexuality but to be caring and faithful in intimate relationships"
  • April 22: "Not to lie but to be truthful."
  • May  27: "Not to intoxicate with substances or doctrines but to promote clarity and awareness"
  • June 24: "Not to speak of others' faults but to speak out of loving kindness".

We hope that those who want to participate will commit to attending as often as you can. (We know not everyone will be there every time.)

We will send out encouragements and readings between each meeting, so be sure to come to the first meeting, and if you're new let us know if you want to join in but aren't able to be there A, and we'll add you to the email list. You can email Jaune at jauneevans@me.com.

The series of sixteen meetings is divided into three segments, Aug-Dec (Refuges and Three Pure Precepts); Jan–June (first five Clear Mind Precepts); Aug–Dec (last five Clear Mind Precepts).

You can commit to just one segment, if not the whole series. For more information and background, you can take a look at Shohaku Okumura’s Living By Vow or Dale Wright’s The Six Perfections.

The study group is offered freely, and we are always grateful for Dana contributions.

We look forward to offering this study of the heart of our lineage and practice together and to being with all of you.
