Dear Dharma Friends,
We are happy to announce that we are transitioning back to in-person practice at the center beginning this week! Our Wednesday evening yidam practice, Saturday Vajrasattva, and Sunday practices are open for attendance. With the exception of Wednesday yidam practice, all others will also be available on Zoom.
We ask that only fully vaccinated people come in to the center. Masks are strongly encouraged. If you do come in for a practice, please be mindful of your neighbors and allow ample spacing between yourselves. If you do not feel well for any reason, please do not attend in person. Please see our Covid Policy on the website for details.
Please also note: our weekly Saturday morning practice is Vajrasattva yidam practice, and it starts at 9 a.m. Basic Buddhism: Practice and Study has moved to Thursday evening at 7 p.m.
May the illumination of wisdom teachings shine through all obscurations of our mind, and may our practices be beneficial to all beings!
