Dear Dharma Friends,
This week we will be sharing the Wednesday evening Green Tara yidam practice online as well as hosting in person at the center. All other practices this week are as regularly scheduled. For a general overview of our weekly practices please see the Our Practices page on the website.
Please note: beginning this week we are consolidating our Zoom links for practices to always use the same Zoom meeting URL. If you have bookmarked or saved any old Zoom links they will not be valid. Unless otherwise noted, you may join our online practices by following this link. We will generally open the Zoom a few minutes before it is scheduled to begin – if you get a message that the meeting has not been started, please allow a few minutes for the host to open the room.
We ask that only fully vaccinated people come in to the center. 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.
May the illumination of wisdom teachings shine through all obscurations of our mind, and may our practices be beneficial to all beings!
