Program Details

First Thursday Open House & Dharma Night

February 7 / 7:00 PM - February 7 / 8:30 PM

For our February Open House & Dharma Night, we will be showing excerpts from a talk given by Ani Pema Chödrön called The Path of Fearlessness, given at the 'Smile at Fear' weekend in October 2010 at the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond California.

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.

We look forward to meeting you!
