Date: Sunday, March 3, 2024
Teacher: Susan Chapman

This talk is about gratitude to those fellow sangha warriors who show us our blind spots and encourage our wakefulness.


Date: Sunday, March 10, 2024
Teacher: Tessa Racine

Tessa Racine leads this month’s “Second Sunday” Maitri Bhavana, so we can practice for the wellbeing of others. Maitri Bhavana is a practice that is done for the benefit of the seriously ill, or for major global turmoil and disasters.


Date: Sunday, March 17, 2024
Teacher: Touching The Earth Collective

Join Touching the Earth Collective to celebrate the spring equinox, that also falls on St. Patrick's Day, a most green day! With lhasang and haiku we greet the change of seasons.


Date: Sunday, March 24, 2024
Teacher: Barbara Bash

Life sometimes presents a clear path. For Barbara Bash it was the alphabet. Come hear about the many forms this path took, the ways it mixed with Buddhism and Chögyam Trungpa, and how it continues to evolve in her life.


Date: Sunday, March 31, 2024
Teacher: Herbert Elsky

When our struggle to maintain our ego dissolves and our mind relaxes, much to our surprise, new worlds of perceptions that we never could have imagined are revealed to us. This is the ground of creativity which is always available to us.
