Because of the pandemic, we will continue to remain closed for sits and events. We make this decision in keeping with the Buddhist commitment to honor and protect all life. We are sitting together online Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.

Dharma Discussions

On the Sundays we don’t have a guest speaker, our Sangha engages in Dharma Discussion after our 30 min sit. Our discussions may relate to book readings, Buddhist principles, meditation practice, and others.

We always welcome new ideas and volunteers to lead conversations. You can sign up to lead a discussion here:
