Meditation and Dharma Talk
Heart of the Dharma would like you to join us for Meditation and Dharma Talk by Dana Marsh! Every Tuesday evening the Compassion & Insight Center will be open from 7 pm – 8 pm for our Meditation and Dharma Talk by Dana Marsh. We begin with a twenty minute guided meditation followed by a short break to enjoy tea and conversation with other attendees. After the break Dana offers a thirty minute Dharma talk. Dana is also available after the hour to meet one-on-one with attendees who would like further instruction on their meditation practice. The majority of members who attend our meetings don't RSVP on Meetup. So even if it looks like there aren't members attending, there are, and we invite you to join us as well with or without an RSVP. We look forward to seeing you! --Heart of the Dharma Suggested donation: $5.00. No one is turned away for lack of funds. We appreciate your generosity which helps to support the activities and expenses of Heart of the Dharma. Without your generosity we would be unable to host people in our beautiful space. Thank you in advance for your kindness. Everyone associated with Heart of the Dharma volunteers their time and efforts. Note: Several of our regular attendees have debilitating allergies and aren't able to attend when a fragrance fills our practice space. We ask everyone to please either avoid wearing perfume, cologne, or scented lotion, or wear only a very minimal amount. Thank you for helping to make our Center a comfortable and inviting space for everyone. [masked] (
