Corona Virus (COVID-19) Update

As we face the rapidly changing conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are shifting from in-person meetings to holding sangha online by Zoom. We will be doing this for Wednesday evening meetings and also for Monday and Thursday morning meditation. You do not need a Zoom account to participate.

Each week we send email invitations for these Zoom meetings. We have two email lists, one for Wednesday evening sangha, and one for Monday and Thursday morning meditation.

If you haven’t been receiving email invitations for these meetings and would like to participate, please email us at [email protected]. and indicate which email list(s) you’d like to be on: Wednesday evening sangha; Monday and Thursday morning meditation; or both email lists. Please click here for general instructions for joining our Zoom sessions..
