Join via Zoom — updated Sunday 5th April

Dear Sangha friends,

We will be meeting via Zoom for the foreseeable future, using the following links:

  • Weekday morning meditation (each weekday 7.00 – 7.30 am PST) link here
  • Sunday evening meditation (every Sunday 7.00 – 9.00 pm PST) link here

The links above will be the same each time (so you will not need a new link every week.)

You can also subscribe to our Google Calendar to have these events and links automatically added to your calendars. Do that by clicking here (may only work from non-mobile devices).

Yours in the Dharma,

Will
