bowing in

Postby nobodhi » Mon Jul 01, 2013 3:24 pm

Living in San Francisco Bay Area, where I facilitate a small weekly free drop-in mindfulness practice group; we've completed the meditations in The Blooming of a Lotus, and are now exploring metta, & soon we'll delve into the Anapanasati & Sattipathana. We meet at a center near the sound of the waves.
Upāsaka in the Tiep Hien Order (the Order of Interbeing).
Livelihood = writing, speaking, teaching.
Current focus theme = chronic illness/wellness; also a day/month for prison dharma.
More info :
my online name is an allusion to a poem by Emily Dickinson :

I'm Nobody! Who are you?
Are you - Nobody - too?
Then there's a pair of us!
Dont tell! they'd advertise - you know!

How dreary - to be - Somebody!
How public - like a Frog -
To tell one's name - the livelong June -
To an admiring Bog!

Welcome nobodhi! :group:

With metta,
---The trouble is that you think you have time---
---Worry is the Interest, paid in advance, on a debt you may never owe---
---It's not what happens to you in life that is important ~ it's what you do with it ---

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

When I saw this thread and your username, my first question was going to be 'how did you pick such a username?' but see you have already answered that. :tongue:

Hi nobodhi and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Sutta Nipata 3.725
