Upcoming Sangha Meetings
Sangha Meetings to follow up on the KCC Town Hall Meeting are scheduled as follows:
Sunday, February 24, 11:30am—1:30pm Saturday, March 2, 10:00am—12:00pm
- Sunday, March 10, 4:00—6:00pm (before evening Calm Abiding practice)
Further meetings will be scheduled as necessary, as the specifics of the transition process evolve.
Small Group Format
We will use a small group format for the next series of sangha meetings. This form will invite deeper conversation and give opportunity for folks to speak who might otherwise refrain from sharing in a big group. In these smaller breakout groups, you will be able to continue to voice your questions about the transition process. The Transition Team will provide a couple of questions for the groups to reflect upon. Detailed notes will be gathered from each groups’ conversation. We aim to continue to gather the sangha’s questions as well as begin to invite more detailed feedback to help inform the process of selecting a new resident Lama.
All are welcome to attend one or more of the upcoming meetings. We ask only that you RSVP ahead of time, if at all possible, so that we may plan to have enough facilitators on hand at each of the meetings. Rest assured, no one will be turned away. Please RSVP as soon as possible by sending an email indicating your name and the date(s) you plan to attend to: firstname.lastname@example.org (see dates above).
Questions, Suggestions, Ideas, etc.
If you have questions or ideas you would like presented at the upcoming Sangha Meetings please email the Transition Team at email@example.com. They will present the questions to the facilitators for discussion. This will be the most reliable way to voice your suggestions for followup meetings. Thank you for your participation!
Some questions to contemplate in preparation for the followup meetings:
- What experiences at KCC are of value to you?
- What changes would you like to see at KCC?
- What concerns and emotions have emerged for you with the recent transitions? (pessimism/optimism, curiosity, fear, frustration...)
