We’re so grateful that we had the option to move our many regional drop-in groups to the virtual Zoom platform during the COVID pandemic. This had the added benefit of providing support and community to people around the country (and world!) for whom no local sangha exists. And yet, the desire to be in the room together, feeling the tangible support of each other’s presence, has been palpable. We’re happy to announce that a few of our regional sanghas have begun meeting in person again while retaining the option to attend simultaneously via Zoom. As always, these classes are offered on a dana basis and are open to people at all levels of practice.
While each sangha has its unique personality, all offer a combination of lightly guided meditation, a topical dharma talk, and time for practice questions and discussion. These groups are a great way to begin or deepen your practice and find community. You are most welcome to join us, either in person or on Zoom.
This sangha has been meeting for 15 years, on Sunday mornings from 9:00-10:30 am.
