It is the custom of the Orlando Insight Meditation Group to dedicate the Thanksgiving Eve talk to the topic of gratitude.  Peter described the Three Refuges of traditional Buddhism, that is, taking refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha from a different perspective:  the potential we all have for awakening, the principles and practices that foster the awakening process, and the intentional community of individuals who want to practice the Dharma in relationship.  This was followed by each person attending “thinking out loud” about his or her gratitude for what Buddhism provides for spiritual development.
