Saturday October 6th, and Tuesday, October 9th

This Saturday we have our regular half-day of sitting and walking meditation from 9:00am until 12:30. We usually do 30 minutes of sitting alternating with 30 minutes of walking but that may change if there is an unusual weather event.

Come for some, or come for all…
