Bhikkhu Jayasāra Friday Evening Talk: “Anger Arises” August 23     7 – 9 pm
Saturday Daylong, “Living with Uncertainty” August 24   9 am – 4 pm

Bhikkhu Jayasāra, or Bhante J, is an American Buddhist Monastic of the Theravada tradition who resides at Bhavana Society of West Virginia with his preceptor Bhante Gunaratana.  He has been a meditation practitioner for nearly 15 years, a Buddhist for over a decade, and in 2014 at the age of 36, left lay life behind and moved to Bhavana to become a monastic. He now shares teaching duties for retreats at Bhavana Society and, when invited,  travels the country to share the Dhamma with those who wish to listen.

Friday Evening Talk: “Anger Arises”

Anger is an all too human emotion that some claim to be useful for their purpose, some revel in it, and for some it is a prison. Is there ever skillful use of anger? How do we manage our anger in a way that cause the least harm? What does the Buddha teach us about skillfully dealing with anger that arises in our mind?

The talk will be preceded by a  30-minute guided meditation and followed by 45 minutes for Q and A.

Date……………..Friday, August 23
Time……………..7 – 9 pm
Location………..Park Road Baptist Church, Milford Chapel
Cost……………..Free. Dana (donation) encouraged for the teacher who is not otherwise compensated. 

Saturday Daylong: “Living with Uncertainty”

They say we live in uncertain times. The reality is, however, that uncertainty always abounds all around us. We cannot know what our future holds ten minutes from now, let alone ten days or ten years, but we always have a choice as to how we act in the present. 

Join Bhante Jayasara for a day of practice in facing our fears and abiding in impermanence. Come explore what the Dhamma teaches us about how to live a skillful and meaningful life. It takes courage and wisdom to live skillfully in a world of uncertainty.
