Sunday Morning Meditation:
Meditation begins at 10 a.m. There is some ritual, including lighting a candle, bowing, and brief chanting that begins and ends the meditation. There are two sitting meditations, interspersed with a brief walking meditation.
Please arrive before 10 a.m. since we lock the door at 10. The door will be unlocked during walking meditation.
First Sundays: We start at the same time as other Sundays but at 11 a.m. we will have a Dharma talk. People can come for the whole service or simply for the talk and discussion. Following the meditation we will have a vegetarian potluck. You may come for just the potluck if you wish. All are welcome.
Second Sundays: We will have sitting and walking meditation from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
Third Sundays: Meditation session starts at 10 and ends at 11 a.m., followed by tea and discussion. The focus of the discussion is a reading which is emailed out to all on our list several days earlier.
Fourth and Fifth Sundays: Meditation will be from 10 to 11 a.m. with a ten minute walk in between two sitting sessions.

The discussion segment will be a time for questions and answers as well as teaching and dialogue on various topics pertinent to meditation.
