First Thursday Open House & Dharma Night
January 3 / 7:00 PM - January 3 / 8:30 PM
These informal events serve as an introduction to our Center, to Shambhala Buddhism and the practice of peaceful abiding meditation, as well as an opportunity for our current friends and members to share in the Dharma.
We begin our Open House evenings at 7:00 p.m. with meditation instruction and a short period of sitting meditation practice. At around 7:30, we provide either a short Dharma talk or video followed by a group discussion.
Afterwards, we adjourn for tea and snacks in our cafe-style community room and chat with Shambhala practitioners and other visitors.
There's plenty of time for visitors to ask any questions they may have and also to explore in greater depth the topic of the evening. The evening ends between 8:30 and 9:00.
Our guest speaker for June is Charity Martin.
Charity is a long-time student of Shambhala Buddhism and a Bodyworker who brings her years of experience to enable students to experience a more grounded and centered meditation experience. (Check back soon for more detailed information about our program that evening.)
We look forward to meeting you!
ALL ARE WELCOME!
