Dress is always casual, with loose fitting, modest clothes recommended to allow comfortable sitting in a lotus or semi-lotus position. Cushions (or chairs) are available, but you are invited to bring your own. All sessions are free, but donations are accepted to help pay for facility rental, purchase books and tapes, and fund special projects.  


The sangha also provides other opportunities for community-supported mindful living. Discussion groups gather to explore readings and other materials relevant to Buddhist practice. Several times a year, the sangha hosts Days of Mindfulness that offer inexpensive one-day retreat opportunities. Quarterly Mindful Resource Dinner Gatherings provide information on ways one can  integrate mindful practices into every aspect of daily life, from financial planning to volunteer work.


We welcome everyone with any level of interest to all sangha gatherings. The only requirement is a respect for the harmony of our practice community.
