Calendar & Schedule

Regular Schedule

First time visitors should contact us to get the address and directions. The best time for visitors would be the third or fourth Monday of the month. Please arrive 15 minutes early for a brief orientation. Dress comfortably, wearing plain darker colored clothing, preferably without any large writing or images on it. You should dress appropriate for the weather, but modestly. Don't wear tank tops or shorts. If you have a cushion you normally meditate with you can bring that, otherwise there are cushions or chairs.
