*Sanskrit Chanting has been replaced by Buddhist Chanting on August 18th*

Buddhist Chanting with Matthew Goddard

Time: 6:00 - 7:30 pm
Location: For Goodness Sake

Immerse yourself in the sound of ancient and modern Buddhist Mantras and Chants. Matthew will play gentle melodies on the guitar and present each chant slowly, in order that everyone can follow along. Many of the Chants are cut directly from the source, while others have been adapted to modern melodies. The Chants are easy to follow and we will chant them over and over, allowing each participant time to familiarize and chant along.

We will be Chanting in Pali, Sanskrit, Tibetan, Japanese and English, and there will be time for questions and discussion.

The Power of Peacemaking: Utilizing Mindfulness to Cut the Roots of Conflict
with Greg Heffron

Dates and Times: Friday Sept. 15th: 7-9pm and
Saturday, Sept. 16th: 10am-6pm
Location: For Goodness Sake
Cost: $120; click here to register.

Conflict can be positive and beneficial. No one wants a world where everyone agrees all the time. But conflict often arises unnecessarily and artificially, causing harm and providing no benefit. This is due to using aggression as a shield against a complex world.

Through talks, meditations and group exercises, this workshop will explore the four ways that aggressive speech escalates into conflict. By learning to interrupt these toxic patterns of aggression at each step, we can bring greater openness to our relationships and communities, transforming a world of artificial conflict into a world that is connected.
