In-person programs have a Zoom option available, with the exception of some outdoor programs.
Discussion about Awakening
Due to popular demand, our monthly Neuroscience and Meditation discussion, held on Thursday evening, is being expanded to include all topics, including awakening, and spiritual experiences.
Do you think you have had an opening or awakening of some type? Have you had a shift in your perception of the way the world is or how “you” are? Did you want a place to share these insights?
Wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving, with much gratitude for the sangha!
