Christian Gauthier of the Kadampa Meditation Center in New York will present a service about the Buddhist perspective of inner peace and how to cultivate it within our hearts using simple techniques of breathing meditation. Anyone can benefit from engaging in meditation for 5 or 10 minutes. He will be speaking at the Berlin Township Community Center in Beach Lake,Pa at 10:15 a.m. on Sunday, August 25th. All are invited to the one hour service sponsored by the Upper Delaware Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. Directions can be found at www.uduuf.org.

The purpose of meditation is to cultivate positive states of mind, conducive to peace and well-being, and overcome negative habits of mind. Happiness is a state of mind, therefore the real source of happiness lies in the mind, not in external situations. When our mind is peaceful we are free from worries and mental discomfort, and we experience true happiness.

Christian Gauthier is the Education Program Coordinator and meditation teacher at Kadampa Meditation Center New York. He has been practicing Kadampa Buddhism since 2009. His practical and inspiring teachings make Buddhism accessible to everyone.

Pat Sanders will lead a service about the "Dia de los Muertos", the Day of the Dead, a Mexican holiday. Day of the Dead festivities unfold over two days in an explosion of color and life-affirming joy. The theme is death, but the point is to demonstrate love and respect for deceased family members. We will explore the elements of the celebration such as the calaveras, foods, papel picado and more. We will have an ofrenda, or altar, prepared and participants can bring a photo or memento of a deceased loved one to add to the altar.


Joy
November 17, 2019 (All day)

Sharon Paige will be reading excerpts from the book Spiritual Evolution (How we are wired for faith, hope, and love) by George E. Vaillant, M.D. I will be speaking on Joy, the least studied of all the primary human emotions. There is no easy definition of joy. Joy is different from happiness. Joy is different from pleasure. Vaillant's study helps us to understand the difference and how to recognize it. I will reflect on personal joyous experiences and hope to continue the discussion with our congregants on their experiences with joy.
