Autumnal Equinox 2022 Teaching and Practice - Nalandabodhi Seattle

Autumnal Equinox 2022 Teaching and Practice

Thu., September 22, 2022
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The autumnal equinox occurs on Thursday, September 22nd this year.  The equinox, like the solstice, is a moment of change in the annual cycle. As instructed in The Aspiration Prayer of Samantabhadra prayer, we recognize this change “at the solstices or at the turn of the year” with practice and recitation.

Change, Fear, and Renewal

In this short talk, Mitra Tyler Dewar will share reflections on how change is often closely followed by fear, and how fear can sometimes connect us with a vivid freshness that can help us make beneficial changes. Please join us!
