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 10am since we lock the door at 10. During walking meditation and after meditation ends (before other programs begin), you may knock on the door to be let in.
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.

Please join us for Wednesday evenings. The format is informal with meditation instruction, meditation, and discussion. The discussion segment will be a time for questions and answers as well as teaching and dialogue on various topics pertinent to meditation.
