Dear Dharma Friends,
This week we are on our regular schedule. Wednesday evening yidam practice is Chenrezig at 7pm. Thursday is Evening Tea Break at 7pm on Zoom. Saturday morning is Vajrasattva practice at 9am. This Sunday at 10am our practice will be Achi Chokyi Drolma.
As we noted during the annual meeting we have set up a form to gather responses and feedback from those who are able to offer their time and energy in volunteering to help take care of the many tasks and chores that keep TRTCC alive and growing. There is no obligation required – your response will help us to understand and coordinate our volunteer efforts.
Please be advised: the CDC is currently listing our community hospital admission level of COVID as low. This is based on data for the week ending January 13, 2024. Masks remain optional for our in person practices at the center but we encourage you to please act with caution. We do ask that only fully vaccinated people come in to the center. We will be running the air purifier in the common area. If you are not feeling well or have had a recent exposure to COVID, please ensure that you are negative with a home test before coming in or to please join us online.
May the illumination of wisdom teachings shine through all obscurations of our mind, and may our practices be beneficial to all beings!
