News & Announcements

Meditation Groups:

  • GROUP MEDITATION: Every Tuesday, 5:30 – 6:30 pm (discussion following until 7 pm)
    Two 20-minute meditations with basic instructions. Fine for both beginners and experienced. Main focus: developing mindfulness of body, feelings and thoughts; learning to observe inner and outer conditions without judgment; cultivating patience and compassion. Followed by discussion, with tea. OK to arrive late or leave early.  Suggested donation of $5, but no one turned away for lack of funds.  Location:  20 Mesa Road
  • TRADITIONAL BUDDHIST MEDITATION:  Every Second and Fourth Saturday, 10 – 12 noon (See our calendar for dates)
    For those interested in exploring traditional Buddhist practices more deeply. Guided meditation and prayers.  Suggested donation of $5, but no one turned away for lack of funds. Location:  20 Mesa Road

 

Programs:

  • BODHIMIND BOOK GROUP:  Every other Tuesday  (See our calendar for dates).  The group is currently reading a book by Jon Kabat-Zinn entitled Wherever You Go There You Are.  Everyone is welcome to attend. There is no need to have the book or attend every session (although it is helpful to do so).  Since each discussion is open and free flowing, those attending on a regular or periodic basis are welcome to take an active or non active role in the discussion.
  • BODHIKIDS PROGRAM:  A small committee is meeting regularly to discuss the future growth of the BodhiKids program.  Soon, we will be making decisions on the structure, format, and times of the program.  When we have more information, we will send an update.  As we said, we want to meet the needs of children, of parents who need quiet time to meditate, and of older parents and adults who want to develop a deeper sense of connection and mindfulness.  Whether you are a parent of a child who will participate, a parent of adult children, or a meditation practitioner without children, your are vital to our Sangha Community. We appreciate your patience!
    • Contemplate a gift you might occasionally offer in terms of kindness, time and/or energy to help create BodhiKids.  Soon we’ll announce some specific opportunities…

Other Events in the Area:

  • MANDALA OF ENLIGHTENMENT – THE DHYANI BUDDHAS & TARA – GODDESS OF LIBERATION PAINTINGS BY JOAN BREDIN-PRICE:  IDEA Space, May 29th – July 15th
    A series of seven events related to this wonderful exhibit is now over. Two events drew over 100 people each, and the others were very well attended. How fortunate we were to celebrate and contemplate in connection with Joan Bredin-Price’s gorgeous creations!
