Although the Aloha Sangha newsletter started going out weekly to our subscribers back in 2008, due to a change in email service providers, I can only display newsletters beginning in early February, 2022. Many of the messages in previous newsletters were made into blog posts. Our chronological blog post page is here. To see the full list of posts on one page go to our Post Archive page.
Apart from the main weekly message, our newsletters also share poems, guided meditations and teachings from respected teachers within the fold of Early Buddhism and Buddhist-based mindfulness. Simply click on the blue “message” link to see the newsletter.
Message: Life is a whole journey of meeting your edge and softening again and again. Teaching story: on the dangers of self-evaluation. Guided meditation: by Joseph Goldstein.
Message: A maturing practice is a more chill practice. Just the innocence of a body sitting quietly and breathing. Poem: Everything Is Going to Be All Right, By Derek Mahon.
