Cross River Presents: 6th Biennial “Dana Dinner”
Apr 30, 2016 10:42PM
[dropcap]I[/dropcap]n partnership with Julie Kline and her staff from Lovin’ Oven, Matt Branham from Healing Path Acupuncture and Moira Kowalczyk from RiverCenter.net, the Cross River Meditation Center Sangha is hosting their sixth “Dana Dinner” for the community. There will be bountiful dining choices for carnivores and herbivores alike at the Lovin’ Oven on Tuesday, May 24 at 6pm.
“Dana” is an ancient Pali word meaning generosity and giving. The most effective and vital way we can give is by being mindfully present with each other. To actually put aside thoughts of self and to be fully aware of the presence of another is the true practice of compassion. This brings profound joy and purpose into one’s life which then naturally gets shared with others.
We encourage all from our community to join us in sharing the great generosity of spirit inherent in our community. If you are able to, please bring a dish to share and a practical gift. If you are not able to contribute food or practical gifts, please join us and share your generosity of spirit by your presence. We will have a table of practical donations for anyone to take home after an incredible meal and warm fellowship.
Location: Lovin’ Oven, 62A Trenton Ave. (Route 29), Frenchtown. 908-996-7714. For more information and volunteer opportunities, visit CrossRiverMeditation.com/Dana-Dinner.
