SHOW ME DHARMA (SMD) is a non-profit organization dedicated to making the study and practice of Insight Meditation available to Mid-Missouri. We support and encourage the development of community based upon Theravada Buddhist ideals, teachings and practice.
We have just requested to bring a screening of the film WALK WITH ME to our local movie theater. WALK WITH ME takes us deep inside the world-famous monastery of Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh, and captures the life of a monastic community who have given up all their possessions for one common purpose – to practice the art of mindfulness. Screenings of this film are happening all over the country! We really want people to see WALK WITH ME, which is why I’m reaching out to you for support. The screening will only take place if we get 56 people to reserve tickets. I hope you will attend and encourage your friends and family to come, too. You will only be charged for the ticket if we’re successful in getting the minimum (or more) reservations! Moreover, movie will be followed by a Q/A session.
Please help me spread the word about this event. I am pleased to share this honest and heart-warming film with the Sangha. The screening is planned for November 12th, at 3 pm at REGAL CINEMAS COLUMBIA STADIUM 14, 2800 Goodwin Pointe, Columbia, MO. (MAP IT ). If you plan on attending, please reserve your ticket by clicking here.
Remember: Tickets can only be purchased online and in advance only. The tickets are priced at 8.63 + 2.5 $ convenience fee per ticket. Tickets will not be available at the theater on the day. Here is a flyer for the event.

Because our minds are unique, this class will offer a variety of meditation practices. Plus we will teach you how to work with the common roadblocks to practice. Also the support of a practice group is essential for many people to get a regular practice started.

Have you ever wanted to read and study the Buddha’s discourses (suttas) but weren’t sure where to begin? Have you tried but found the discourses difficult to understand? Are you interested in being instructed, inspired, and touched by the Buddha’s wisdom, humor, and stories of his own path to Awakening?
In this sutta study course we will be reading the anthology In the Buddha’s Words. This book, compiled by Bhikkhu Bodhi the great contemporary translator of many of the Pali discourses, contains key suttas grouped around major themes as well as helpful introductory essays by Bhikkhu Bodhi.
The course will meet once a month, beginning on Monday Oct. 23 at 7:15 p.m. at Show Me Dharma. We will read together selections from each month’s assigned reading and discuss what we’ve read in terms of its meaning to our lives and practices. Offered on a dana basis, but registration is required.
