Monday Night Meditation & Dialogue

This is a great place to get to know us. On Monday nights we meet at 7 PM PT for an hour of meditation, accompanied by beginners’ instructions. After a short break, we share questions and open dialogue. On 2nd and 4th Mondays, we also meet at Heart of Wisdom Temple, as well as on Zoom.
