There was an RSVP problem for the Volleyball Championship. I hope you can make it. It is suppose to be beautiful weather!

Announcing a new Meetup for Southern California Mindfulness Communities!

What: 2nd Annual Los Angeles Buddhist Beach Volleyball Championship!

When: Saturday, October 9,[masked]:00 AM

Where: Santa Monica Beach (North)
14782 Pacific Coast Highway
Santa Monica, CA 90402

We are going to start the day with a little mindfulness practice! The first couple hours will be dedicated to mindful (silent) beach clean up, sitting meditation, and walking meditation. This is very basic introductory practice; if you can sit, walk, and pick up trash, you already have all the skills necessary! At 12:00 noon we'll transition to volleyball.

10am - 10:30am Sitting meditation
10:30am - 11:00am Mindful Beach Clean Up (bring your own bags if you remember and gloves if you want them)
11:00am - 11:20am Twenty minutes of walking meditation in the sand
11:20am - 12:00noon Closing and transitioning to traditional fun at the beach!
12:00pm - 1:00pm Warming up on the Volleyball court and sharing food!
3:00 - 4:00 practicing nothing to do... no where to go... unless of course you have somewhere to go.

During the tournament, you can play on the team that is keeping score for victory or defeat, cheer on your team or all the teams, or play some relaxed just for fun volleyball in the other courts.

Where: If you can do Google maps the address is: 14782 Pacific Coast Hwy, Los Angeles, CA, United States across from Patrick's road house. If you are using a map, it is at the intersection of Entrada and the PCH, on the north side of Santa Monica. We will meet out near the life guard station #18.

Parking: There is a small lot right at Entrada & PCH. It is $10 for the day. There is some street parking on Entrada and there is a pedestrian pass under the PCH.

Bring your friends, family, sunscreen, bags for beach trash, gloves if you want them, sun hats, sand socks, sunscreen, water, and vegan snacks to share. If anyone has volleyball lines bring them too!

To find us:
From 10:00 - 12:00 we will be near life guard station # 18. Between 12:00 and 3:00pm we will be at the volleyball courts across from Patrick's Road house.

I look forward to a great day at the beach!
