We’ve been offering women’s practice day for some time, and now Suddhayu will be offering a men’s practice day. Create a space where Sangha can grow through friendships, deeper communication and the sharing of inspiration of the Dharma.

On March 22, 2014, 10-3 pm, Suddhayu will lead The Visionary Path: Men’s Practice Day. The imagination brings together the best of our emotional and intellectual life, and is a faculty for a deeper, intuitive understanding of the world we experience. On this day we will look at how the imagination functions as a ‘sense’ for perceiving higher truths, and how archetype, poetry and myth serve as gateways to those truths. Offered by donation, $60-$40 suggested

Suddhayu developed an interest in Eastern philosophy and meditation as a teenager. In 1992 he attended his first meditation retreat at Aryaloka Buddhist Retreat Center in Newmarket, NH. Soon after, he moved in to the residential community there, where he lived for the next eight years. During this time, he also lived in England for six months where he worked for a Buddhist Right Livelihood project, and attended a four month retreat in the mountains of Spain where he was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order. In the new century, Suddhayu married Lona Kovacs and began work as the greenhouse manager for a local plant wholesaler. In 2008, he helped expand that business by cultivating the surrounding fields to grow vegetables, thus founding Touching Earth Farm, a CSA responsible for providing fresh vegetables to over seventy households. He is currently teaching meditation at Green Lotus Yoga Studio, and is on the board of the Portsmouth Buddhist Center.
