The Summer/Fall 2017 Brochure is now out! If you need one mailed to your home please contact the Director.

Also, a correction: The Refuge and Resistance Group meets on first and third Sundays, not second and fourth as listed in the brochure. It may also occasionally meet at another location. Please check here to confirm. (No announcement means that it will run as scheduled at the Center.)

Refuge & Resistance returns to their regular meeting schedule on First & Third Sundays, on September 17 at 1:00pm.

The Young Adult Sitting now meets twice per month
First and Third Thursdays; 7:15 - 8:45 pm
For ages 18-35ish

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.
