Public Meditation Schedule

Some meditation sessions are in-person with attendance limited to 10-12 people in the Main Meditation Hall.

We will continue to use Zoom for most of our events, programs and meditation sessions. While we were hesitant to use this technology for this ancient practice, it turns out to work quite well, and allows a feeling of connecting with other meditators.

We suggest sitting on a chair or cushion in your home. Turn on your camera at the beginning so we can all see you; you can leave it on or turn it off during the medtation practice. Turn it on again at the end so we can check in and chat.  Scroll down to find our Zoom details.

Meditation instruction is available as part of our Wednesday Open House program. Many people find it helpful to repeat this instruction session after a couple of weeks.

You can find all our meditation sesssions on our monthly calendar.

Please mute your microphone during sitting meditation.  You can meditate with your camera on or off.  Each Zoom meeting begins a few minutes before the posted time.

Helpful tips for Using Zoom for online meditation and classes.


You can arrive late for any sitting session.  Please place your shoes in the main closet and enter the meditation hall quietly.  If there is a gatekeeper, you may be directed to wait outside the meditation hall for a few minutes before entering.  You can also quietly leave any meditation session early.  A good time to do this is during walking meditation.


Public sitting meditation sessions may be cancelled on holidays. We have changed our schedule many times as we try to keep up with the changing pandemic situation. Please check out our monthly calendar regularly.
