A time and place for contemplative practice and meditation, to look deeply and connect with who we really are.
An ineffable field underlies, permeates, and ignites all phenomena: the vastness of the expanding universe and the most minute thought-forms and particles of matter all unfold in the boundless terrain of the dharma. Its rhythm can be seen in the circling of the planets and stars, in the cycles of days and seasons, in the pattern of our breath and the cadence of every beating heart.
We honor the wisdom of many traditions, from the nonduality of advaita Vedanta to Buddhist thought and practice, from the treasures embodied in indigenous and earth traditions to Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and the mystical insights gleaned by poets, philosophers, and spiritual adepts of every era.
In these gatherings, chanting, meditation, poetry, teachings, and reflection soften our mental constructs and illuminate the generous shape of the heart. These practices invite us to experience the boundless consciousness of heart/mind as love, compassion, kindness, wisdom, and joy.
