Summer Greetings from
Marcia Craighead and Russ Jones

August 2018

Dear Friend of Mountain Stream,

Greetings and deep gratitude for the many ways you nurture and engage with Mountain Stream Meditation. Whether you’ve contributed through service, monetary support or actively participate in community practice, together we create a spiritual refuge accessible for all beings.

This is an exciting and busy time at Mountain Stream. As of August 1st, Board President Russ Jones is stepping in as Executive Director and Marcia Craighead is shifting from her role as Executive Director to a new position as Program Manager. We are expanding our part time staff so we are better able to serve the whole community.

Twice a year Mountain Stream asks for your financial support to keep our ongoing programs, classes, retreats and Center vibrant and strong. Every form of support sustains our mission: Offering the heart and depth of the Buddha’s teachings for all beings, to ease suffering and to awaken to compassion and joy.

Right now, your financial gift will have double the impact! A generous sponsor has offered to match contributions, up to a total of $5,000 - August through October, 2018. Consider a sustaining monthly gift or a one-time donation and it will be matched dollar for dollar. All offerings of generosity, financial or otherwise, are graciously accepted. Thank you.

On behalf of the Mountain Stream Board of Directors, teachers, staff, and volunteers, we are very grateful for your past and present contributions. This tradition of generosity has supported a cycle of giving and receiving that has preserved and shared the Buddha’s teachings for over 2,600 years.

“…the seeker who sets out upon the way, shines bright over the world…” Dhammapada

Yours in the Dharma,

                   Marcia Craighead   &   Russ Jones
