“Buddhism with a small “b” – November 2

 

On Wednesday, November 2nd from 7-9 PM, Paul Weiss will look at some of the essential teachings of Buddhism, including the process of “awakening”, in terms of the practical psychology of everyday life.  At this talk and conversation, people will be able to experience several meditation processes that support us in the everday day task of stilling our minds, expanding our awareness and opening our hearts.

Thus, we can all be buddhists with a small “b” – people who are just trying to be more awake, more present and more loving in our lives.

Paul Weiss, has been Director of The Whole Health and Counseling Center in Bar Harbor since 1981, and a student of Buddhism for almost half a century.He has trained in Zen monasteries and with many teachers; and has studied in India and China.

This event is being held at the Unitarian-Universalist Church of Ellsworth (UUCE), 121 Bucksport Road and is being sponsored by the UUCE Adult Religious Education Committee. The event is open to the public and and is free of charge.

For more information contact Janice Ronco at 310-0837 or UUCE at 667-4393.
