All programs are currently ONLINE. Plans for reopening our meditation halls will be announced here and in our weekly e-newsletter.

We are dedicated to community, learning and spiritual discovery. We are committed to providing a safe place that promotes dignity for people of any background, gender, race, age and ability. See our Care and Conduct Policy here. All are welcome!
