    Join us for our monthly Open House. At 10am, we begin with sitting and walking meditation (those new to meditation can receive instruction from 9:30 – 10:00am). After a brief break, at 11am there is a talk by a senior student with discussion. At 12pm, we gather in the Community Room for refreshments and socializing.

    For July:  The Joy of Impermanence

    The Buddha's teaching, as well as our own experience, tells us that everything is impermanent.  From a certain perspective, it is one of the most penetrating and hard-to-accept truths in our lives.  From a different perspective, it gives us the possibility of relaxation, freedom and joy.  In this open house, we'll discuss how we can work with this fundamental "fact of life" in a sane and joyful way.
