Sunday Morning Meditation:
Beginning this Sunday, June 13, the Dharma Center will reopen for in person services in accordance with CDC guidelines. We ask that unvaccinated individuals wear a mask inside the Center and that anyone who isn’t feeling well stay home. We will continue to offer Zoom for those who are unable to attend in person.
We will also welcome the B12 group back to the Dharma Center beginning Saturday, June 19. Zoom will also be available for those who can’t attend in person.
Our Wednesday night Beginner’s Meditation will remain on Zoom for now.
We look forward to practicing with you again in our beautiful space!
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.
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.
Second, Fourth and Fifth Sundays: Service from 10 - 11 am.
Third Sundays: Meditation session starts at 10 and ends at 11 a.m., followed by discussion. The focus of the discussion is a reading which is emailed out to all on our list several days earlier.
Tuesday meditation is suspended until further notice.
Wednesday: Join us by Zoom:
7:00 - 8:30 p.m.
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. Whether you are a one-time visitor, an occasional participant or regularly attend these evenings, we hope you will find them helpful. There is no cost but donations are most welcomed.
