Dear friends,

This weekend (January 20th-22nd) we will have a weekend course with a lay Buddhist teacher John Christopherson. Beat the snow and join us for a weekend of meditation sessions, Dharma talks, and Q&A's!

John can only come just before midnight on Friday, so we start with a guided 16th Karmapa Meditation at 8pm on Friday in the Center, followed by a little Q&A with local sangha members. We will then continue Saturday morning with a meditation session, Q&A with John, and a lecture. The program on Sunday will be similar, with lecture in the morning, and meditation session in the afternoon.

All the program takes places at our Center. The help cover the cost of travel we will ask you for donation of $10 per lecture/Q&A session (or $30 for the full event).
