Looking for a place to land? Visiting for the first time?

Every Sunday morning at 11:00 am we offer free, informal meditation instruction during our Sunday Open Sitting Practice. Come and experience the power of sitting with a group of practitioners.! At noon we will host a simple “soup and salad social” for new and current members to mingle. This is a chance to ask our teachers any questions you may have or just hang out and get to know some really cool people. For more information, click here!
