Three Jewels Tucson, More Events Than You Can Shake a Mala At

DM sister center Three Jewels Tucson is exploding with Dharma events this break.  Courses, classes, and meetings are happening almost every day at what we like to think of as Diamond Mountain's heart in the city.  Some exciting courses will be taking place such as Bok Jinpa, ACI Course 9, and Path of Realization.  There are also daily Zazen meditations, as well as yoga classes, and a Buddhist Gay and Lesbian Meditation group.  And there's still more.  Check out the 3J's calendar of events to see what tickles your spiritual fancy.

And as usual just about everything is free (as in 'some things are too valuable for a price tag').

Winter '08 Work Week Under Way

Winter term has ended and we at DM just can't keep busy enough.  Five weeks of classes, homeworks, debate, and lack of sleep hasn't phased us.  Now we've switched over to shoveling, hauling, tamping, and raking.  For the entire week following this term DM has been having an official service week that includes projects large and small (and all of them dirty).

A few pics from the work have made it to the web and maybe they'll inspire you to come out and join in.  There's always more goodness to be had.
