We have sitting meditation and a talk on Friday night
from 7-8:30 PM and a Sunday service from 11 AM -12:30
PM which includes meditation, chanting in English and
a talk with time for questions. Both sessions are led
by Khenpo Gawang Rinpoche. After the sessions Rinpoche
is usually available for individual and group meetings.
We do not have a prerequisite for new people prior to
attending. Both sessions are free, open and everyone is
welcome. Rinpoche often says that a dharma center is a
place for everyone to come, relax and be present together.
It is a place to be happy.
Cushions, chairs and chant books are available at the
center. You can also bring your own cushion if you have
one you like to use for meditation.
