Losel Shedrup Ling will have a membership
meeting on Sunday, March 26, at 2:00 PM

Members and friends are invited to join the LSLK board @ the center at 2PM on Sunday March 26th to discuss an opportunity to move to a larger location. Among other considerations, we will discuss how ownership in the building might strengthen our ability to continue offering space in Knoxville for the beautiful practices and gatherings that make up our sangha, as well as leverage LSLK’s resources in support of other opportunities for contemplative practice and arts in the city.

Please message me (Traci Black: if there are questions you would like addressed before the meeting and I’ll do my best to answer as specifics continue to come into place.

May the Buddha’s teachings flourish,
may all the teacher’s have long lives (and patience),
may the sangha always be in harmony,
and may all beings benefit!

March 18, 2017 – Letting Go: A Day of Mindfulness and Meditation with Janka

A Day of Mindfulness and
Meditation with Janka

Saturday, March 18, 2017
1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

“Do everything with a mind that lets go.
Don’t accept praise or gain or anything else.
If you let go a little, you will have a little peace.
If you let go a lot, you will have a lot of peace.
If you let go completely,
you will have a complete peace”

– Ajahn Chah

In this world of plenty with constant opportunities for instant gratification the mind can conceive of many desirable things, and all that wanting can stir up a lot of agitation in the mind. Discerning what one actually needs at any given time within the range of wants and desirables is a helpful wisdom practice leading to inner peace. Through the practice of wise letting go, we begin to realize that the dissatisfaction and the sense of lack we feel will never go away through having or storing something up; and that true fulfillment and happiness comes from developing the mind and heart through meditation.

This half-day of practice will consist of guided meditations, walking meditations, instructive talks, group discussions and written homework suggestions.

To register, please follow this link to Facebook
and reply as GOING.

***Space is limited to 25, please only reply as GOING
if you are sure to attend***

There is no set fee. Donation/Dana for LSLK and the teacher

Janka Livoncova has been practicing meditation and yoga since 1994 and teaching since 2004. Her guiding dharma teacher is DaeJa Napier. See Facebook for more details.
