By Candradasa on Wed, 4 Oct, 2017 - 22:44

Sunday October 8th through Sunday November 5th, 9.30am-12pm

Join us over the next 5 Sundays for a new series exploring what we turn to for deep satisfaction in America today. We’ll be meeting as an intentional community, meditating together, and looking with humor, humility and maybe even some grace at how the Buddha’s vision of reality relates to the big themes of this human life, so rich and so complex and, sometimes, so totally confusing!

Weeks 1 & 2 (Sex & Money) hosted by our friends...
