                                      WEEKLY PRACTICE MEETINGS
                                                                               (Currently on Zoom)


The Thursday evening program runs from 7 to 8:30 PM, beginning with a 30-minute silent or lightly-guided meditation, followed by a Dhamma talk or a reading-and-discussion and Q&A. The Thursday program tends to be themed around practicing Dhamma as the Buddha taught it via the Four Noble Truths, the Four Foundations of Awareness, and the Four Selfless Emotions. Through 2020, we are devoting two Thursdays each month to exploring the Buddha's original meditation instructions called the Satipatthana or "Four Foundations of Awareness;" and one Thursday each month to practicing traditional Buddhist meditations of wisdom, compassion and healing applied to persistent racial violence and suffering.

The Sunday morning program
runs from 8 to 9:30 AM, beginning with a 30-minute silent meditation, followed by discussion of a reading, video or audiotape on a Dhamma topic, and ending with a shorter meditation. Afterwards, everyone is warmly invited to stay online for an informal "virtual coffee" session of sharing and spiritual friendship.
