The Basics
1. A fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.
2. Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net.
3. Played with a paddle and a plastic ball.

Website: www.lifepathretreats.com

The practice of meditation gathers, centers, and calms the mind. It allows one to see through the mind’s conditioning and thereby live more fully in the present moment.

The SMA Meditation Community is an open, flowing collection of people from different traditions (including various Buddhist lineages) who share a love of sitting in silence. We also share a love of spiritual community free of doctrine or belief, based in equality and mutual respect. Everyone is welcome. Because friendships with like-minded people support the inner path, we usually meet informally after sittings to share ideas and come to know one another.

Although the forty-minute silent meditations begin at 10:10 and end at 10:50, please feel free to come and go quietly at any time. Meditation assistance is available before or after the sit.

For more in-depth meditation instruction, ask Ann Barden (Vipassana) or Jerry Steward (general) at jermer@hotmail.com, 154-0877.

All offerings are free, donations welcome. For more information or to be on our mailing list, contact: SMAMC@lifepathretreats.com

Viva la Revolución

By David Johanssen

Son of a peon but a natural-born leader, Mexican Revolutionary war hero, Emiliano Zapata’s destiny was determined by the “land reforms” of dictator Porfirio Diaz whereby peasants often lost their land, sometimes to be then held in servitude by large plantations. Abuses against the peasant farmers escalated until the seeds of revolution were born. Zapata formed and commanded the “Liberation Army” as one of the greatest heroes of the Mexican Revolution of 1910.

Don’t miss our showing of the rare, classic 1952 film Viva Zapata! on Wednesday, August 24th at 5 pm and discuss its modern implications with Dr. Luis Casillas, noted historian and World Bank economist who will host our post-film discussion. Starring Marlin Brando and Anthony Quinn (who won an Oscar for his performance) and written by John Steinbeck, the film remains a Hollywood triumph. “Throbs with a rare vitality… a masterful picture of a nation in revolutionary torment.” – The New York Times. 100 pesos (Includes drink).

01:00pm-  
Cost: 60
Location: Teatro Santa Ana, Biblioteca, Relox 50a

Website:

Center for Global Justice

While this high tech surveillance is new, we should remember that government spying (and worse) has long been with us, particularly if you are an opponent of the status quo –and doubly so if you are African American. The documentary The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution, revisits the Sixties when millions in the US believed that revolutionary change was in the air, that imperialist war, capitalist exploitation and racism needed to die, and that radical change was not only possible but also inevitable. The response of the establishment was COINTELPRO – the Counter Intelligence Program organized and implemented by J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI to harass, discredit and destroy the Black Panthers and other revolutionary organizations by every dirty trick imaginable, up to and including trumped-up criminal charges and outright assassination. Young politically-minded people should see this film and learn some history of revolutionary politics in the US.  Older politically-minded people who have gotten fuzzy about the lengths to which our ruling class will go to stamp out opposition should also see the film lest we forget.

This lecture will tell a few short tales of the archetypal characters representing the evolution of tai chi, showing the morals each story teaches. These stories are meant to connect us to our past and provide us with ideals that we can look up to in search for the truth; the discovery of harmony, perseverance, and commitment; and the careful husbanding of the life force, chi.

Zhang Sen-feng left a message for future generations, a manual to teach the inner secrets of tai chi chuan technique, and "desired that the whole world should achieve health, longevity and enlightenment." Zhang's book is the first chapter in what would later become known as tai chi classics. Zhang's martial art was a powerful dance that is simultaneously a comprehensive fitness regimen, a shield against disease, a way to circulate energy, and a beautiful art form. But Zhang and the masters who came after him had a deeper message: The dance is only a metaphor for the principles of how to live your life connected to your soul.

Wang Tsung-yueh, a wandering Taoist priest who had studied martial arts, based on the development of internal power, the chi, brought the technique to the fledgling Chen style. When Wang watched the Chen fighters, he observed they were still using too much physical strength, and not enough mind-intent, followed by qi. Wang taught his students softness would overcome hardness. Wang was a member of the Taoist sects that practiced martial arts as a path to spiritual purification. Wang's contribution was a return to the basics, infusing Chen boxing with the fundamentals of Taoist philosophy and the secrets of getting more qi power into their movements.

Little Yang Lu-chan was such an enthusiastic learner of kung fu he became a servant

The practice of meditation gathers, centers, and calms the mind. It allows one to see through the mind’s conditioning and thereby live more fully in the present moment.

The SMA Meditation Community is an open, flowing collection of people from different traditions (including various Buddhist lineages) who share a love of sitting in silence. We also share a love of spiritual community free of doctrine or belief, based in equality and mutual respect. Everyone is welcome. Because friendships with like-minded people support the inner path, we usually meet informally after sittings to share ideas and come to know one another.

Although the forty-minute silent meditations begin at 10:10 and end at 10:50, please feel free to come and go quietly at any time. Meditation assistance is available before or after the sit.

For more in-depth meditation instruction, ask Ann Barden (Vipassana) or Jerry Steward (general) at jermer@hotmail.com, 154-0877.

All offerings are free, donations welcome. For more information or to be on our mailing list, contact: SMAMC@lifepathretreats.com
