"When one thought ends, right before the next thought begins,
there is a tiny gap called 'now.' Over time we learn to expand that gap."

Dharma of Now: Wise Engagement for Difficult Times

New! Thursday Night Sitting and Discussion Group, no pre-registration required. Cost: $0-30 sliding scale.
Meets 7:15pm – 9:15pm, Thursdays, in the Community Meditation Center

"When people get together to share their concern and uncertainty it transmutes the anxiety into positive action, a lived experience of refuge in sangha. As we head into the uncharted waters that lie ahead, this will be the key to making a difference." — James Baraz 

Join us 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.

Cost: $0-30 sliding scale.
