J and Division (it’s a white house/church with lavender blue trim), Thursday evenings 7:00 to 8:45 pm. Each week we begin with a session of Mindfulness meditation followed by a short session of guided Lovingkindness meditation. A ‘dharma talk’ follows the break.

These classes and groups are offered by “Dana” Donation. “Dana” is a word from the Pali language spoken in Asia at the time of the Buddha. It means “generosity freely offered.” It is felt that these teachings are too precious to be bought and sold, thus the teachers rely on the generous support of others to continue their teaching. In addition, those with the resources to donate more help those without funds through their generosity, and the classes can remain open to all. A Dana basket will be available for your donations. Thank you for your kindness and support.
