Join us for a 30 minute meditation time prior to our main service.
Everyone is welcome!
If you are interested in meditation but do not have a practice please come by 9:00 am and we can provide instruction to get you started.
REMINDER: Our potluck picnic at St. Patrick’s Island Park is this day – Sunday, Sept 10. We will meet in the picnic area near the children’s playground any time after service. The closest parking area is on the zoo side. I will bring hotdogs, veggie dogs and buns to share – James has offered to bring a small bar-b-q for us. I hope to see some of you there. Fingers crossed that the weather cooperates for us. If it rains we will reschedule.
Everyone joins the first part of the service and then they will proceed to the upstairs classroom/ boardroom.
The goal for the new season is to host an activity for the kids every Sunday. Lessons will be approximately every-other week, and informal playtime/social time for the kids with games and puzzles will be on the other Sundays.
The website will be updated with more specific information as planning progresses.
*We are looking for volunteers to help with Dharma Time – both for short lessons (25 minutes) and for play/social time supervision. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or at 403.651.4501 if you are able to help.
All of our services are open to everyone 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.
Our downstairs library has books for loan and is open every second Sunday of the month.
A membership is $20.00 and books can be borrowed for a one month period.
You may also join us and have a cup of tea and an informal discussion on various topics!
