Ānanda asked the Buddha, “Is it true, Lord, that noble friends are half of the holy life?” The Buddha responded, “No, Ānanda, noble friends are the whole of the holy life.” 

Sharon became Sylvia’s teacher in 1985 and in time they became teaching colleagues as well as good friends. In this three-part series, Sharon and Sylvia will talk about how Dharma teaching has changed in the West as it has evolved, how the culture of the West has been changed by the Dharma, and perhaps most importantly, how each of them feels they have been changed by it.

Each two hour session will include Sharon and Sylvia in spontaneous dialogue, periods of guided meditation, and Q&A. Participants will be invited to submit questions in advance of the sessions and online during the sessions to establish a sense of inclusivity for saṅgha near and far.

All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org.
