    Friday Morning Book Discussion Group

    Beginning January 3, the Friday Book Group will be reading,
     
    'The Tender Heart of Sadness
    25 Aspects of Warriorship'
     
    by Roger Guest
     
    "When we speak of a tender heart of sadness, we are not referring to melancholy or mundane disappointment.  A warrior's sadness has little in common with the emotional deflation, depression or self-pity normally associated with the word sadness.  Rather, the 'genuine heart of sadness' borders on joy.  Trungpa Rinpoche called it "the ideal human emotion".  When our longing for sanity melts into an appreciation of sacredness, it leaves us tenderized, transports us to the frontiers of intimacy and invites us to leap."
     
    We take turns reading from the book & we discuss the material.  Books are available for purchase at the group meeting.  Plus there are books for us to use during the meeting.
