There is no doubt that regular meditation develops a sane perspective. It is more clearly seen that we are all on this bus together, interconnected and interdependent, and if we are going to survive and thrive we need to learn to take care of each other.
Out of this basic sanity arises a deep wisdom and love that expresses through skillful and compassionate action. This is not a belief but a truth that has been scientifically validated many times.
Most people are deeply engaged in the on-going drama of their ‘me’ mind and never stop long enough to question whether any of what they are thinking and believing is actually true. This questioning is an act of existential courage that ultimately brings down the imaginary walls that separate us. This is true freedom.

The Monday Night Meeting
The Monday Night Meeting, or satsang, is an on-going program. Satsang means association with the Truth. Satsang is an opportunity for people to come together with a spiritual teacher to ask questions, inquire into spiritual matters, or simply rest in the silence of Being. Satsang is a profound transformative process that takes place at a subtle level, often outside the awareness of the conscious mind.
MNM is an in-depth explorations of what it is to be and live consciously in the relationships and activities of our everyday lives.
These explorations will be based on Tom’s own experiences of awakening, transformation and actualization plus the teachings and practices of the great enlightenment traditions such as Zen, Taoism, Maha Ati, Non-dual Tantra, the Yogic Pathways, as well Transpersonal Psychology and The Human Potential Movement.
7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Cost: suggested donation $10
