Can't sit on a cushion? You're not the only one. We provide chairs in the shrine room as well as different types of cushions and benches so you can find what works for your body. The Buddha himself realized that physical discomfort is not conducive to meditation.
Parking: On evenings and weekends there is free parking in the Strata Forestry lot. We are located in the Strata building and you use the outside stairs to enter our second-floor location.
Cost: Our center is entirely volunteer-run. There is no charge for the public sittings or meditation instruction, but donations to help us with our overhead are joyfully accepted.
