We are happy to introduce a new format for our community practice on Tuesday evenings. Please see the schedule below. You are welcome to begin at 6:15 or at 7:30. 

On most evenings Jeff will offer dokusan during the first hour. Jeff will usually lead the teaching circle, but we hope many senior sangha members will take a turn. Topics will change monthly according to a published schedule.
