Mukpo Institute: Fall Semester 9/9/15 - 12/1/15
Mukpo Institute students conduct a three-month investigation into the principles of Hinayana and Mahayana Buddhism. Students study and practice the fundamental meditation techniques of shamatha and vipashyana. Understanding and practice of these techniques is supplemented by studies of Buddhist philosophy of mind and consciousness. There are also opportunities for students to witness and practice traditional contemplative arts. The heart of the Mukpo Institute semester is a month-long mindfulness retreat called dathün. During dathün, students apply mindfulness to all activities in addition to scheduled walking and sitting meditation sessions. Meals are taken in traditional Japanese monastic style; silence or mindful speech is observed; also mind-body disciplines are practiced.

Annual “Grub on the Green”, a community wide potluck meal. All welcome - residents of Lunenburg and neighboring communities, as well as visitors to the area, and those just passing through. Bring some food of your choice to share (main dish, side dish, or a combination) and maybe a lawn chair. If you’re not able to bring something along, please come anyway; there’s always been enough to go around! There will be electrical outlets to accommodate some crock-pots and large bowls for chips. The Committee will also provide paper goods, drinks, and picnic tables. “Comfort Country”, with Tim Berry, Lee Baker, JoAnne Gilman, and Suzan Shute, will provide entertainment during your eating and visiting time on the Common. The rain location is the Lunenburg Primary School behind the Common on Bobbin Mill Road. It will be a great event regardless of the weather!

The Fairbanks Museum and Passumpsic Naturalists bring you John Whitenight presenting his research on collecting during the Victorian Era called "At Home with Nature, Natural History and the 19th Century Interior". Social commentary of the times enriches the exploration of these beautiful art objects. Experience the lightheartedness and whimsy to be found in the decorative arts created from 1837 to 1901 and preserved under these domes. John Whitenight, while always a passionate collector of Victoriana, began collecting glass domes in 1973. He has been researching the “why and wherefore of these lovely domed items” ever since. His book "Under Glass" will be available for signing.
