Date: Sunday, September 24, 2023
Teacher: Touching The Earth Collective

Shambhala Touching the Earth Collective’s Global Celebration of Harvest of Peace.


Date: Sunday, October 1, 2023
Teacher: Gabriel Dayley

With the motivation to serve others, we can use rest to generate the creativity and exertion to address the monumental social and ecological challenges of our time. Through settling our minds and bodies, we rouse energy for meditation in action.


Date: Sunday, October 8, 2023
Teacher: Han de Wit

Han de Wit 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, October 15, 2023
Teacher: Alexander Devaron

During our hour together we’ll sing three songs, contemplate their meaning, consider alternate translations, and practice meditation.


Date: Sunday, October 22, 2023
Teacher: Touching The Earth Collective

Join us in a Celebration of 5 years of being a Collective! We will share the mission, vision and values of the Collective and check in on how we have developed. Please join us for this celebration and some birthday cake!


Date: Sunday, October 29, 2023
Teacher: Janet Ryvlin

With curiosity and openness, my hope is that we investigate how DEI work is dharma, and how we can bring our spiritual practice into our life beyond the cushion.
