Here are the highlights of our upcoming programs.
Senior Dharma teacher and author, Jon Landaw will teach “Buddhism for Beginners”, Thursday evenings, June 2, 9, 16 (2016).
Our annual Medicine Buddha Festival is Saturday, June 18. Park and ride the shuttle from Main Street School in Soquel. Revision: Onsite parking at 5800 Prescott Rd, Soquel CA 95073: $20 fee. Cars will not be allowed to arrive between 10am and 11:30am because of the procession and the shuttle buses needing to get back and forth during that time.
Meditators are still welcome on Saturday and Sunday mornings (9:30am). Even though we have the big gate at the entrance now, it is open for you at meditation times. You can get in between 9am and 10am to attend the Saturday Medicine Buddha Meditation (in the Gompa) and the Sunday Guided Contemplations (in the Wish-fulfilling Temple).
The current cycle of DB ends with the practice day on Sakadawa (which is open to others as well). A new cycle of DB starts up on July 5, with the class moving to Tuesday nights. We will start at the beginning with DB1: Mind and Its Potential.
The Basic Program: “Our Buddha Potential” (Sublime Continuum) will have a break of a few weeks after the Festival (June 18) and will resume in mid-July, moving to Monday nights.
