Join us for Sangha Nights, Wednesday evenings, 7 - 9 pm. Beginning with a meditation (guidance and support available for those who would like it) followed by a presentation and discussion on Buddhist study and/or practice.

In December Suddhayu is presenting themes from The White Lotus Sutra.

Dec 5th: The World on Fire: The Parable of the Burning House — The Buddha describes us as children playing in a house that is engulfed in flames. How does an image like this inform our practice?

Dec 12th: Quenching the Flames: The Parable of Rain and Herbs — A reflective evening on one of the most beautiful parables ever told. How are we nourished by the Dharma?

Dec 19th: Winter Silence — As we approach the longest night of the calendar, an opportunity to deepen our meditation practice. This evening will consist of two meditation sessions instead of one, with a break in between. Enjoy some time to sit quietly and cultivate some peace before the holidays!

Dec 26th: no class
