Important Announcements

The October Orientation date has been changed to
Wednesday, October 7th due to the Volunteer Appreciation Event.

Registration for Evening Sutra Study is now open!
Click here to register or visit our Courses page for more information.

New Registration System: Starting with the October 2015 events we will be using a new registration system that puts all information directly into our database, improving both accuracy and efficiency. The only difference you’ll see is that there will be two registration links: one for paying on line with a credit card (Register and Pay) and one if you’d like to pay by cash or check either by mail or at the door (Register). Check it out beginning with Sebene Selassie’s October 3 Retreat, Cultivating a Beloved Community: Sangha as Practice, and please don’t hesitate to contact Joyce if you have any difficulty or questions.

The schedule for the Parenting Group has shifted to a biweekly sit, which will happen on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month at the usual time (6:00-7:15pm). See Sittings for the complete schedule.

Also, the topic for the September 21 Conversation with Rebecca has been changed to "The Spiritual Strength of Equanimity: what is it and how do we develop it?" See Special Events for complete listing.
