Friday Night Meditation and Study

Location:1818 Dempster St., Evanston
Day and Time: Friday evenings from 6:00 – 7:30 pm
Teacher: Nancy Floy


Grant your blessings so that confusion may dawn as wisdom
Grant your blessings so that the path may clarify confusions
Grant your blessings so that Dharma may progress along the path
Grant your blessings so that my mind may be one with the Dharma


This ongoing class, lead by Nancy Floy (Julie Heegaard or Fran Hammon in her absence), now begins with chanting of the Four Dharmas of Gampopa (shown above), followed by guided mindfulness meditation and then study of an important Mahayana text. This year, beginning October 20, the text will be Shantideva’s Way of the Bodhisattva, one of the most beautiful, poetic, and profound teachings available. The Dalai Lama said of this magnificent work: “If I have any understanding of compassion and the practice of the Bodhisattva path, it is entirely on the basis of this text that I possess it.”

Until October 20th, the class will be finishing its study of Words of My Perfect Teacher.

If you have any questions about the class, please contact Nancy Floy at
