Dharma Film Series presents LUCKY
Saturday, November 3, 7pm ~ A fiercely independent 90-year-old living a gritty solitary existence on the outskirts of a small Western desert town, Lucky is a survivor—a man whose oddly comical daily habits are as deeply ingrained as the lines of care in his craggy face. When Lucky’s routine is disrupted by an unexpected but inevitable turn of events, he finds himself standing at the precipice, gazing into the unknown. Nearing the end of a long life unencumbered by religious belief, he finds himself suddenly in motion, embarked on a spiritual journey that might include reflection, recrimination, and even blazing realization. In the last and perhaps greatest role of his career, Harry Dean Stanton’s Lucky is a presence as elemental as the red rocks and cacti looking on, alive in this sublime cinematic meditation on karma and connection. Presented with the Institute For Meditation & Psychotherapy. $10 at the door, with free refreshments and post-film discussion; $35/2 CEUs for mental health professionals

SHAMANIC JOURNEY CIRCLE with Comma Williams
Sunday, November 11, 7-9pm ~ Shamanic journeying is a tool that has been traditionally used by indigenous shamans for the healing of individuals and communities.

We know now that anyone can learn to journey, to connect with their own helping guides and spirits in non-ordinary reality in order to get answers to personal questions, solve problems, open creativity, see new ways of being in the world and obtain healing information for themselves and their community. Join Comma Williams for this journey circle where we will travel into non-ordinary reality and ask for information to help us get clarity about our path for this coming year. At the end of the journey you will have an opportunity to create a visual representation of your journey, to help ground it in ordinary reality, visible in this world. $15 or class card

At the same time the body gently stretches and opens, releasing even chronic patterns of tension. The afternoon will unfold with a brief sequence of flowing Kripalu yoga to warm up and prepare the body, then plunge into profound spheres of tranquility and ease. The class may also feature gentle chanting and Reiki to sooth and relax. $35 or class card x 2 + $5 at the door; $28 if registered by November 14th via email with Karen or Keith

Special Weekend Retreat!
HOW THE BUDDHA TAUGHT 'MINDFULNESS'**
The Evolution of Sati & Satipatthana with Chip Hartranft
at the Barre Center For Buddhist Studies
Friday, December 21, 7:30pm - Sunday, December 23, 12 noon
Meditation was a central element in Siddhattha Gotama's own path to awakening—it was how he trained the mind to “know & see things as they’ve come to be,” and realize 'extinguishing', nibbana. Of all the meditation instructions attributed to the Buddha, probably none are more cherished or consulted than the Satipatthana Sutta, which provides formulas for an unusual assortment of mindfulness practices and represents satipatthana as the 'one way' to final knowledge. Important discoveries in recent years, however, have led to a growing scholarly recognition that this key text is an anthology constructed by later scholastics. There are also signs its compilers may not have remembered or personally recognized important early distinctions between different types of contemplation. In this weekend exploration of meditation practice we will identify and embody some of the fragmentary original satipatthana instructions that have survived and been integrated in sometimes contradictory ways into the Pali Canon, as well as Chinese, Tibetan, and Sanskrit sources, tracing a possible way they coalesced into the canonical teaching. As we do, a new picture may begin to emerge of how and when Gotama himself came to teach the four satipatthana 'windows', their relationship to each other, and what yogic states (dhamma) he regarded as prerequisite. The course will include illuminated presentation, dialogue, and meditation, plus optional yoga. For information and registration, click here
Chip Hartranft directs The Arlington Center, integrating yoga and dharma practice, and has taught mindful movement, breathwork, and meditation in the Boston area since 1978. He is the author of The Yoga-Sutra of Patañjali: A New Translation with Commentary and teaches Buddhist history at Lesley University
