Peg Meyer Graduates from Spirit Rock’s Community Dharma Leaders Program
We of Valley Insight are blessed to have a teacher as loving, ardent, and wise as Peg Meyer. Her embodiment of the dharma continues to deepen with her years of study and practice, and she joyfully and generously shares her understanding with us. For more than two years, Peg actively participated in the Community Dharma Leaders teacher training program sponsored by Spirit Rock in California. She was one of ninety-three chosen from applicants throughout the U.S. and Europe. Peg’s formal graduation was marked by a festive ceremony at Spirit Rock in April, 2017.
The program afforded her the opportunity to have a monthly conference with her mentoring teacher, Taraniya Gloria Ambrosia, as well as a regular monthly discussion with her study group. She chose to concentrate much of her time with this group on issues of diversity and inclusivity with the sangha. To meet the program’s requirements, every month Peg submitted essays and/or lesson plans on a full range of topics. She attended two ten-day retreats with the program each year, plus others of her own choosing. This has been a rigorous program. Peg appreciated the depth of teachings and worked diligently, whole-heartedly taking full advantage of the offering.
Times to socialize!
Join the informal group on the third Monday of every month for Dinner and Dharma. After the sit we go to a local restaurant.
Also, third Thursday of every month – after the Barn sit, we re-convene at a nearby Lebanon restaurant.
VIMS Lending Library has moved to The Barn
Our library has over 150 books, CDs, magazines, and pamphlets cataloged. Catalogs are available on the top shelf of the library. Books are shelved in alphabetical order by author. You may check out books using the sign-out notebook there. The suggested sign-out period is one month. Now that we have a library, please consider donating your Theravadan (Insight) -related texts when you’re moving them from your nightstand to your bookshelf. A box for new donations is located on the top shelf of the library. A bow of gratitude to Advisory Board member Suzanne Serat who has sustained this project!
