   10:00am  meditation: w/ the SMA Meditation Community

10:00am-11:00am  
Cost: free, donation
Location: LifePath, Rinconada de la Aldea 29
Contact: jermer@hotmail.com, 154-0877
Website: www.lifepathretreats.com

The practice of meditation gathers, centers, and calms the mind. It allows one to see through the mind’s conditioning and thereby live more fully in the present moment.

The SMA Meditation Community is an open, flowing collection of people from different traditions (including various Buddhist lineages) who share a love of sitting in silence. We also share a love of spiritual community free of doctrine or belief, based in equality and mutual respect. Everyone is welcome. Because friendships with like-minded people support the inner path, we usually meet informally after sittings to share ideas and come to know one another.

Although the forty-minute silent meditations begin at 10:10 and end at 10:50, please feel free to come and go quietly at any time. Meditation assistance is available before or after the sit.

For more in-depth meditation instruction, ask Ann Barden (Vipassana) or Jerry Steward (general) at jermer@hotmail.com, 154-0877.

All offerings are free, donations welcome. For more information or to be on our mailing list, contact: SMAMC@lifepathretreats.com

Qi Gong - A gentle movement practice for everybody -- and every body. Learn this easy way to calm the mind and heal your body.

Qi Gong, pronounced “Tchi Kong”, is a cousin of Tai Chi Chuan and is also part of one of the five branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It means “control (or work) of the energy".The practice consists of slow and non-violent movements, combined with breath exercises and concentration of the mind. Thanks to the breath work, this thousand-year-old discipline helps the circulation of energy through the body.The regular practice of Qi Gong calms and relaxes the mind. It reinforces the neuromuscular system and makes it more flexible. It optimizes the functions of the organism and sustains the strength of self-recovery. It guarantees good health and vitality.A practice for everybody, regardless of sex, religion, age or physical condition.Drop-ins welcome

Throughout the year we offer various programs of Buddhist and Shambhala teachings, as well as advanced meditation practices.

Thursday, May 28th at 3 pm join us for a documentary and discussion on the Aztecs. In 1431, the Aztecs forged an alliance with the northern kingdom of Tlacopan and Texcoco to the east. The Triple Alliance defeated the eastern kingdoms, making the Aztecs the dominant rulers of central Mexico. But these allies were also the first kingdoms to feel the wrath of Cortez and his anti-Aztec allies, as the Spanish conquistador made his scorched-earth march toward Tenochtitlan in 1520. 50 pesos.

   10:00am  meditation: w/ the SMA Meditation Community

10:00am-10:50am  
Cost: free, donation
Location: LifePath, Rinconada de la Aldea 29
Contact: jermer@hotmail.com, 154-0877
Website: www.lifepathretreats.com

The practice of meditation gathers, centers, and calms the mind. It allows one to see through the mind’s conditioning and thereby live more fully in the present moment.

The SMA Meditation Community is an open, flowing collection of people from different traditions (including various Buddhist lineages) who share a love of sitting in silence. We also share a love of spiritual community free of doctrine or belief, based in equality and mutual respect. Everyone is welcome. Because friendships with like-minded people support the inner path, we usually meet informally after sittings to share ideas and come to know one another.

Although the forty-minute silent meditations begin at 10:10 and end at 10:50, please feel free to come and go quietly at any time. Meditation assistance is available before or after the sit.

For more in-depth meditation instruction, ask Ann Barden (Vipassana) or Jerry Steward (general) at jermer@hotmail.com, 154-0877.

All offerings are free, donations welcome. For more information or to be on our mailing list, contact: SMAMC@lifepathretreats.com

Guns, Germs and Steel

By David Johanssen

Is the Eurasian hegemony due to intellectual, moral and inherent genetic superiority or was it the influence of geography on Eurasian societies and cultures that gave them advantages? Jared Diamond is a professor of geography and physiology at UCLA, his book Guns, Germs and Steel won the Pulitzer Prize in 1998. The book explains why Eurasian civilizations survived and conquered others, while arguing against the idea that they had an inherent genetic superiority. Diamond argues that the gaps in power and technology between human societies originate in environmental differences. When cultural or genetic differences have favored Eurasians (i.e. written language or the development among Eurasians of resistance to endemic diseases), he asserts that these advantages occurred because of the influence of geography on societies and cultures, and were not inherent in the Eurasian genomes.

Join us for a three part documentary series and discussion of Jared Diamond’s work, starting Saturday, May 23rd at 5 pm, continuing Tuesday, May 26th at 5 pm and concluding Saturday, May 30th at 5 pm: Guns, Germs and Steel. Why did history unfold differently on different continents? Why has one culture - namely that of Western Europe - dominated the development of the modern world? 50 pesos each event.

   10:00am  meditation: w/ the SMA Meditation Community

10:00am-11:00am

Location: LifePath, Rinconada de la Aldea 29

The practice of meditation gathers, centers, and calms the mind. It allows one to see through the mind’s conditioning and thereby live more fully in the present moment.

The SMA Meditation Community is an open, flowing collection of people from different traditions (including various Buddhist lineages) who share a love of sitting in silence. We also share a love of spiritual community free of doctrine or belief, based in equality and mutual respect. Everyone is welcome. Because friendships with like-minded people support the inner path, we usually meet informally after sittings to share ideas and come to know one another.

Although the forty-minute silent meditations begin at 10:10 and end at 10:50, please feel free to come and go quietly at any time. Meditation assistance is available before or after the sit.

For more in-depth meditation instruction, ask Ann Barden (Vipassana) or Jerry Steward (general) at jermer@hotmail.com, 154-0877.

All offerings are free, donations welcome. For more information or to be on our mailing list, contact: SMAMC@lifepathretreats.com

By Verónica Montaño
We have always wanted to be happy. All of us, animals and humans.
We have sought happiness in rest, our couple, beaches, money, family, possessions, occasional solitude, entertainment, rituals, study, health, sports, parties, friends, work and ... we have found very enjoyable moments, but unfortunately impermanent. They disappear suddenly or are interrupted by problems and disappointments continually.
Buddha explains the secret of happiness as something more internal and something we can control, because the outside world is impossible to control permanently. His practical tips are deep and suitable for everyone, Buddhist and non-Buddhist, youth, adults, men, women, old, rich and poor ... Come to the Biblioteca de San Miguel to listen to a Mexican Buddhist nun Kelsang Sangshe, simple, cheerful and clearly explains weekly the secret to discover and maintain the complete happiness for yourself and others.
Join us every Monday at Gloria Grant Room from 5 to 6:30 pm. Donation: $ 50 pesos.

Por Verónica Montaño
Por Desde siempre hemos querido ser felices. Todos, animales y humanos.
Hemos buscado la felicidad en el descanso, la pareja, las playas, el dinero, la familia, las posesiones, la soledad ocasional, las diversiones, los ritos, el estudio, la salud, el deporte, la fiesta, los amigos, el trabajo... Y hemos encontrado momentos muy gratos, pero lamentablemente inpermanentes y que desaparecen pronto, o que se ven interrumpidos por problemas y sinsabores sin cesar.
Buda explica el secreto de la felicidad como algo más interno y que podemos controlar, porque el mundo externo es imposible de controlar de forma definitiva. Sus consejos prácticos y muy profundos son adecuados para todos, budistas y no budistas, jóvenes, adultos, hombres, mujeres, ancianos, pobres y ricos... Ven a la Biblioteca Pública, aquí en San Miguel, a escuchar a una monja budista mexicana, Kelsang Sangshe, sencilla, alegre y clara, nos explica semanalmente el secreto para descubrir y mantener la felicidad completa, para ti y los demás.
Te esperamos. Todos los lunes en la sala Gloria Grant de 5 a 6:30 pm. Donativo: $50 pesos.

The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo

By David Johanssen

Frida Kahlo persevered through a private life of illness and pain while cultivating an open and irreverent public persona. Born in Mexico in 1907, Frida became an international sensation in the world of modern art and radical politics. She counted Leon Trotsky among her lovers but Nelson Rockefeller and Henry Ford among her friends. Although plagued by ill health since contracting polio at the age of six and later being involved in a horrific traffic accident as a teenager, Kahlo remained a vibrant force in art and political circles, a symbol of empowerment for women and for the disabled. The influence of traditional Latino culture on her work has led to her recognition as a figurehead for its revival.

Tuesday, June 2nd at 4 pm, join us for a documentary and discussion: The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo. This fascinating film features interviews with many of Kahlo's friends, including author and historian Carlos Fuentes, along with a broad visual archive of her life, including photographs, movie clips and paintings. 50 pesos.
