Hi friends of Tig-Le,
This is our last newsletter for 2019. It has been a healthy year for Tig-Le with changes creating opportunities for practice growth, empowerment of understanding, concentration of efforts, and the strengthening of relationships with others working on health and Refuge in varied ways. This has cumulated into energy for outreach, various sessions and retreats, Puja, Wongkur and Sadhana developments, all of which deepen and enrich mindfulness and allow us to share extension work including meditative practices and continue modern expression of ancient dharma.
In 2020 we will continue these efforts; together we all make Refuge and healthy engagement with daily life and living possible. Thank you to everyone involved, to those who attend teaching and practice sessions, to those who embrace understanding of the precious dharma teachings and work to apply them in their lives, for sharing your friendship and generosity, for all your help. It’s all about the Refuge collectively we seek to create in individual personal ways, in our lives, with others, for this World and the future, equal for all life. Our sincere gratitude to all.
Saddhu, Saddhu, Saddhu – Enable, enact, conserve all that builds peace and health in the world.
