ServiceFeb 18, 2018 10:00 am

Our services are open to all and no prior knowledge or experience with Buddhism is necessary.

The services are conducted in English with the exception of some chanting.

Service books are provided so that everyone can participate in these traditional, centuries old chants.

After service, every third Sunday, please come downstairs to browse through our Temple library while you have a cup of tea.

We invite you to sit and talk about a Buddhist book you’ve read.

CircleFeb 20, 2018 7:00 pm

This Tuesday group is a small meditation- & awareness-focused Practice ‘circuit’ meant for people who have been exploring Buddhism but wish to improve in:

Meditation (25mins), Loving-Kindness, Equanimity,  Compassion,  Sympathetic Joy,  Deep Listening, &  Gratitude.

 

We will get to know each other while we deepen our Practice in a safe and caring environment.

Members will have the opportunity to run a weekly of session (voluntary).

 

This is a different form: that of a Circle, with each member contributing and learning from each other.

 

To join, I am asking interested people to have a commitment to this Circle for a ‘season’.

This is much the same as if you were to join a sports team:

You can certainly miss a weekly session, but I ask that you are committed to being there for yourself and each other as if you were on a team.

 

This ‘Season’ Practice will run Tuesday evenings from Jan 23rd through Apr 10th, starting at 7pm, at the Temple (IE: 12 weeks).

We usually finish about ~8:30pm, then a little shared cleanup of teacups that we used etc.

You can come on Tuesday Jan 16th to try it out before the ‘committed’ Season starts.

 

It is a gentle group, led by it’s members.

 

 

Membership is limited to 12.

Dana to the temple:  $25/person, speak to me if you cannot afford that, it should not be an impediment to attending.
