Our Regular Events

Weekly Group Meditation: Tuesdays, 5:30-6:30 PM (discussion ends 7:15 PM

Two 20-minute meditations with basic instructions. Fine for both beginners and experienced meditators. 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


Saturday Group Meditation: 9:00-11:00 AM

Come start the weekend with awareness, lightheartedness, and an inner smile for yourself and others, with Rick or Karen. Meditation focus: seated and sometimes with movement, discussion, and readings.

Suggested donation of $5, but no one turned away for lack of funds.    Location: 20 Mesa Road


Book Discussion Group: The Book Group is currently taking a break.

The book group selects a book, usually about some aspect of or relationship to Buddhism. Chapters are targeted for each meeting and then discussed over tea and snacks. Everyone is welcome to attend. There is no requirement to have read the book or attend every session (although it is helpful to do so). Each discussion is open and free flowing, welcoming all to take an active or nonactive role in the discussion.

Free (donations of tea and snacks are appreciated)            Location: 20 Mesa Road


BodhiMind Center Outdoor Activities Group

Our great outdoors is an immeasurable gift of nature. We are a group interested in outdoor activities like hiking, outdoor sitting meditation, walking meditation, outdoor potluck picnics, or even a combination of such activities. Members may choose to do as much or as little as they like depending on their interests and constraints.

If you would like to join our outdoor activities group, send an email to avtinc2000@gmail.com to be included on the group’s mailing list. Anyone on the mailing list may propose any date and any combination of outdoor activities. The group will avoid scheduling conflicts with BodhiMind Center meditations or other BodhiMind Center events.
