Surveying the Landscape:
Guided Meditation and Dharma Talk
IN PERSON AND ON ZOOM
with Susan Stone
We’ve often heard the comment, “One can't see the forest for the trees,” meaning to lose sight of the big picture. The other side of the saying is not seeing the trees for the forest—that is, being so focused on the big picture as to lose sight of details. This talk discusses the importance of seeing the full landscape, trees and forest, and uses the trees-forest image as a metaphor for the two dimensions of reality and two areas of spiritual practice—mindfulness and awareness. The talk stresses the importance of recognizing them as an integral whole, a full landscape.
The meeting will also be broadcast on Zoom so you can join remotely.
