See you online!
On the 3rd Sunday of each month, members take turn to tell a Dharma/Buddhist story and we chat about it informally with this schedule:

3:15 PM: Door opens / Zoom link opens

3:30 PM: Slow Moving Meditation – to help settle our body & mind

3:40 PM: Sitting Meditation

~4:15 PM: Make a Cup of Tea!

~4:20 PM: Dharma Story

~5:30 PM: Adjourn

You may join any or all segments. If you are joining us in-person and arrive late, please gently knock on the door and wait for someone to let you in.

Topic of the Dharma Story segment will be shared ahead of time in our weekly newsletter. Subscribe to stay informed.

Preparing for the Online Session:
  • Check that your internet and audio/video is working beforehand
  • Wear comfortable and loose clothing
  • Find as quiet a place as possible; while also be understanding of each other should kids/pets, etc. make noise in the background! (we’ll use the “mute” function judiciously)
  • If using a meditation cushion or bench, make sure to also have support under your knees – not too hard and not too soft (e.g., rest round cushion on top of a larger square cushion or folded towels/blankets, etc.)
  • If using a chair, sit on a sturdy & comfortable chair where the thighs can be parallel with the floor
  • For moving meditation, please stand in an area that is roomy enough for both arms to extend freely in all directions
  • Once you join via Zoom, you may want to switch to Gallery view to get the best visual experience

Beginners welcome. No cost to attend. Donations welcome. Your generosity will support the continual operations and growth of this group, including the cost of our monthly rent and Meetup subscription fees.

We also meet on other Saturdays with slightly different programs – see our event listing for details.
