What we're about
Meditation in English for all ages and all levels.
Come experience tranquility of mind and listen to Dharma talks and lectures on Buddhism.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn Buddhist meditation in its various forms: seated, walking, chanting and eating meditation.
Please wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing and socks or slippers to wear when inside the meditation hall and refrain from wearing strong perfumes or colognes. This Temple has monks and nuns who live onsite so a conservative dress code is requested: no skirts, short shorts or tank tops.
We will meet between 8:30 AM - 8:50 AM in the main dining hall on the ground floor of the big building you see when you first enter the Temple courtyard. Look for MeetUp signage to direct you.
