The Evening's Program

* Begin at 7:30 pm with forty minutes of silent meditation. There is no introduction; so once you are settled, sit quietly and begin your meditation. Brief meditation instructions are given on the first Thursday of each month.

* Brief chant in the Pali language. Feel free to join in or to continue sitting silently. * Community announcements.

* Ten minute break to stretch, socialize, or pick up information at the greeter table. A bell ends the break.

* Dharma talk, which is usually followed by discussion and questions.

* End at 9:30 with a lovingkindness meditation or dedication of merit.

We hope you'll join us!
