Program Details

February is "Young Meditators' Month!"

February 5 / 7:00 PM - February 27 / 9:00 PM

Everyone is welcome but we are especially encouraging the 20's to 30's crowd to take advantage of this opportunity to gather and network together around the Dharma.

Tues. Feb. 5, 7-9 PM:   Shastri Ethan Nichtern talks about “Right Livelihood in the 21st Century." In an interconnected, global society, how can we know if our work is beneficial or harmful?  Join us for a thoughtful examination of how to earn a living in a complex and complicated world, and how to identify and avoid work that involves exploitation, deceit and destruction.

Pricing:  Our young sangha and friends are especially invited to attend this event.  Through the generosity of our older sangha paying a little more, it is hoped our younger sangha will be able to come by paying a little less.  Please self-select one of the following sliding scale fee options:

Younger Sangha:  $5 - $10
Elder Sangha:      $15 - $20

Wed. Feb. 13, 7-9 PM:   Showing of the film documentary, "Meditate and Destroy" by Noah Levine, author of DharmaPunx and Against the Stream.  Free of charge.
