We practice together in person on Wednesdays, at 4:00 PM, followed by a talk (live or video) and discussion period. These sessions can also be attended via Zoom.
Sunday practice sessions begin at 9:00 AM.
All 60 minute silent meditation periods follow the same format – 30 minutes sitting meditation, 15 minute walking meditation, and 15 minutes sitting meditation. Chairs/cushions are provided.
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.
