Season’s Greetings and Year-End Appeal from John Travis and Heather Sundberg

December 2018

Dear Friend of Mountain Stream,

As the winter solstice and holiday season approach and 2018 comes to a close, it is a good time to celebrate and express our gratitude for all of life’s blessings.  Yes, these are challenging times in many respects, but we are all very fortunate to have the Dharma to guide our thoughts, our actions, and our practice.

Mountain Stream Meditation has been serving an extended community for twenty-six years and our beloved temple, the Nevada City Insight Center, celebrates its sixth birthday in January, 2019!  We feel a palpable vibrancy and energy throughout our community as we witness increased attendance and a deepening of our program offerings. We continually strive to fulfill our mission: ”To offer the heart and depth of the Buddha’s teachings for all beings, to relieve suffering and to awaken to compassion and joy.”

Each year, we appeal to you in the spirit of generosity for a financial gift in support of all that is Mountain Stream - inspiring dharma teachings, beautiful temple refuge, dedicated staff and volunteers, and a wide range of programs. Some specific areas which your contribution will benefit include: increasing our residential retreat offerings, supporting new and continuing programs at The Center, and providing resources for the ongoing maintenance of the temple. Mountain Stream and the Nevada City Insight Center would simply not exist were it not for the many expressions of generosity that come from all of you.

Please consider either a one-time or monthly donation, whatever method of giving works best for you.  The Mountain Steam Board of Directors, teachers, staff and volunteers are grateful to all our supporters.

With a deep bow and much metta for your practice and for your generous support of our sangha community.

  John M. Travis &  Heather Sundberg

P.S. A wonderful way to support the Dharma is to remember Mountain Stream as you plan your estate.
