We find meaning and a sense of community through ritual, dialogue, food, and the arts.

We seek to know and expand our personal spiritual centers through study, practice, and contemplation.
We actively support one another by demonstrating love, truth, creativity, and inspiration which flow from our innermost centers.

Popular Happenings

Sunday Circles
Sundays  •  10:30 – 11:45am  
•  The Sanctuary

We are a just-seeking community and we find strength and motivation through our spirituality.  Our Sunday Circles touch on themes of social and environmental justice, anti-racism, addiction and recovery, climate justice, and other relevant issues that impact our lives, our families, and our world.   We also share our wisdom and encourage one another to develop spiritual practices that lead to spiritual growth, expanded consciousness, acceptance, and a more loving way of life.  Learn more.

Buddhist Study Meditation Group

In our weekly meetings we practice basic mindfulness meditation and seek to understand how this practice fits within the framework of the Buddha’s teachings.  Each meeting lasts about an hour and consists of brief meditation exercises and some discussion of the Buddha’s radical approach to life.

Work That Reconnects
Every 4th Thursday  •  7-9pm
3rd Floor Meditation Room

The Work That Reconnects is group work, developed by eco-philosopher Joanna Macy and others, that helps us connect with deep wells of wisdom and resiliency as we work for justice and the healing of Earth.   We would love for you to participate in this work with us…even if you are new to it.  We engage in simple but profound practices and processes that move us through the spiral of Work That Reconnects, from gratitude, to honoring our pain for the world, to seeing with new eyes, and, finally, going forth.  We also share our stories and see how we can support one another in our work for the world.  Learn more.
