Young Adult/Queer & Friends Sitting
For those 18 years old to mid 30's
First and Third Thursdays; 7:15 - 8:45 pm
Jan 4 & 18, Feb 1 & 15, Mar 1 & 15, Apr 5 & 12, May 3 & 17, Jun 7 & 21, 2018

Come join us for a night of sharing and meditation. Our intention is to create an informal and collaborative space to discuss our respective practices on and off the cushion, to ask questions of each other, and to share in this remarkable journey. We strive to be real, honest, open, vulnerable, inclusive, and kind in a safe container. Any sharing is optional.

No two gatherings are alike but we will begin and end with a round of sharing, possibly including a reading a passage or poem. In the middle we will have a meditation sitting and possible walking meditation. No meditation experience necessary.

This group is in transition, so come help us shape the future and/or check back here for updates.

Refuge & Resistance is now Engaged Buddhism and meets on First Sundays, 1:00pm.
