A Path of Peace
Transforming Our Daily Lives through Meditation and Reflections on the Wisdom of Buddhism
 
Who We Are
We come from all walks of life, to practice meditation together; enriched and deepened by presentations and discussion of the Buddha’s teachings; and supported by group fellowship.
 
We practice to improve the quality and richness of our daily lives; to calm and awaken the mind, to help make the world a better place for ourselves and those around us - to walk the path of peace.
​ 
We are not at all about dogma or religiosity. We are not recruiting anyone for anything. While certainly inspired by the Buddha and his teachings, our programs sometimes use material from other traditions. You might say, “We are about the message, not the messenger”. 
 


We Offer
We offer weekly meditation and dharma teachings/discussion and periodic meditation retreats. We practice three types of meditation: 
  • Concentration (samatha) – to develop a mind that is calm, focused, steady and clear-seeing 
  • Insight (vipassana) – to develop a mind that sees and accepts life as it is – finding peace with its fundamental characteristic of impermanence – free from the distortions of greed, hatred and delusion 
  • Loving-kindness (metta) – to develop a mind infused with the radiant quality of an open heart, responsive to the authentic needs of both self and others
​  

Our Weekly Schedule
Our two teachers have decades of practice and nineteen years of combined teaching experience. We invite you to join us, and to let your interests help grow and shape our activities.

During the coronavirus crisis we are meeting online. We currently offer two sessions per week.​
  • Saturdays - 9:30 to 11:30 AM - we begin with a meditation sitting (your choice of two formats - one for experienced meditators, another for those new(er)) to the practice), followed by a dharma talk or book discussion. 
  • Tuesdays - 7:00 to 8:000 PM - this is a "simple" 40 minute silent meditation sitting, offered with opening and closing benedictions.
Our MeetUp pages offer more specifics and will provide you with links to attend these sessions. The Schedule menu item will take you there.
