Please feel free to come by for any session or for the whole program and to tell friends about it. Newcomers are welcome--we will provide meditation instruction. A donation of $200 is requested for the whole program, $15 for individual sessions. The financial contribution is entirely voluntary and should not deter anyone from participating, as the purpose of the program is to provide a sitting opportunity for everyone interested.
We have a limited number of cushions, so it would be appreciated if people could bring their own insofar as possible. It is fine to leave your cushions on the floor for the duration of the program if you plan to come and go. We will have tape and markers on hand, as well as rented chairs.
The room is big and beautiful and sits right on the exquisite garden designed by Trungpa Rinpoche and Kanjuro Shibata, Sensei.
