We practice together in person on Wednesdays, from 4-5 pm, followed by a dharma talk (live or video) and discussion period.

All 60 minute silent practice periods follow the same format:

15 minutes walking
15 minutes sitting
We begin each practice period by honoring the Three Refuges:
** I take refuge in the Buddha; awakened heart and mind.
** I take refuge in the Dharma; the teachings and practices that lead to freedom from suffering.
** I take refuge in the Sangha; practicing with others inspired by the potential for freedom from suffering.
The bell is rung to end the practice period followed by a dedication of merit:
** I dedicate the merit of my practice to all beings; may each being experience freedom from suffering.
