Awakening Through Love Study Group at Putney Friends Meeting

Come practice and study meditation for compassionate living for the next six Tuesday nights from 7 to 8pm. Starting on February 7, participants will use John Makransky’s book Awakening Through Love and practice meditation to enliven our capacity for deep peace and powerful love and compassion. No prior mediation experience needed. ALL sincerely welcome.

Julie Forsythe, a longtime member of the Putney Friends Meeting, will facilitate the six sessions. Julie is a co-founder and guiding teacher of the Foundation for Active Compassion with her teaching mentor, Lama John Makransky, and Leah Weiss Ekstrom. Julie was introduced to Buddhism in 1969 when she was working at the Quaker Rehabilitation Center for Vietnamese civilians during the Vietnam War. Julie has been a student of Lama Surya Das’ and Lama John Makransky’s since 1995 and she has completed many meditation retreats in the natural ease tradition of Tibetan Buddhism (Dzogchen), including multiple One Hundred Day Retreats. She has also served as a practice leader in these retreat settings.
