Join us on Thursday nights as we come together as a community to hold our experiences around current national and world events with compassion and to support one another during this moment of extraordinary change and uncertainty. This time of refuge together includes practices, teachings and discussions that nurture our internal life in support of external service. Each weekly gathering focuses on an issue of particular concern to the community and the world, with the intention of understanding how to respond from the wisdom of the Dharma.
A significant similarity among the many powerful non-violent movements in history, such as those led by Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is a steadfast and almost transcendent commitment to values and moral principles, such as universal compassion, equality, human dignity and forgiveness. Our values are like the roots of the redwood tree: in actively re-committing to them, we find groundedness, strength and resourcefulness in ourselves, as well as connection and mutual support in the grove of our shared community. Join us for an evening of connection, exploration and dialogue about our heart's deepest values as a steady resource for strength, stability and fearlessness.
