Meditation, meditation instruction, discussion, and community.
This Sunday morning meditation session is open to the public and welcomes newcomers, beginners and people who have an established sitting meditation practice. 

Whether your motivation is to simply relax or to explore this profound path, sitting meditation cultivates sanity and fundamental well-being. We practice and teach mindfulness-awareness meditation as it has been passed from teacher to student for 2,500 years.

Meditation instruction is given at 10:00 AM. Please arrive 5-10 minutes before.

Meditation begins at 10:00 AM in the meditation hall. Please arrive at least 5 minutes early, as no one will be admitted late during chants. This hour is a combination of silent sitting and walking meditation practice.

The first 3 Sundays of the month we have discussion facilitated by a senior student. It begins at 11:00 and runs for approximately 45 minutes.  If you do not wish to meditate prior to this you may arrive at 11:00 to join the discussion.

The 4th and 5th Sunday are longer sitting periods—two full hours of silent sitting and walking practice without discussion.

We look forward to seeing you.
