In Person Meditation Opportunities

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.
