BUDDHISTS BEARING GIFTS

We welcomed a new Dharma friend last week.  Alan McAllister is a practitioner from the Bancroft area who has reached out to our sangha. He and his wife, Ilda, joined us for practice and a wonderful exchange of ideas.
Alan brought with him a couple of first-rate additions to our library:

  • Experience The Dharma, by Bhikkhu Khippapanno. This is a solid presentation of Theravadin teaching combined with a Q/A section. This teacher is from the Burmese Mahasi tradition. Very thorough.
  • The Attentive Mind Workbook: Self-healing Through Meditation is Alan’s original book. The book is divided into four parts: Finding Happiness Amidst Suffering; The Paths to Mental Suffering; The Path to Liberation from Mental Suffering and The Path to Happiness. This a mix of familiar ideas and lots of Alan’s original thought based on decades of Dharma practice, especially meditation.

The Attentive Mind Workbook

We look forward to sharing and practicing with these friends again soon.

Yours in the Dharma,
