Hello, dear LMB community,

… and another new development! Yesterday Santa Cruz County issued a Shelter in Place order through April 7th, 2020. As we are not an “essential business”, all LMB public indoor spaces are closed including the Main Gompa, restrooms, the bookstore, and our dining room. You are most welcome to enjoy our outdoor spaces while following social distancing guidelines of keeping 6 feet between you and other visitors. The Shelter in Place order allows for driving to engage in outdoor activities such as hiking, so do try to get out whether it is here for a hike or another outdoor venue.

Even so, if you are feeling unwell, please stay home.

We will be offering as many events as possible virtually through Facebook Live -or- Zoom depending on the program. Please see the online calendar for more details around where to access the particular class that you are interested in.

***You must be registered for classes that will utilize Zoom, you will then receive an email with the Zoom link to join the class***

We will continue to do our part here at LMB by dedicating for all sentient beings to have perfect health now and in the future during our daily Medicine Buddha Puja, please consider sponsoring general prayers HERE, you can also join the Medicine Buddha Puja on Sunday via FaceBook Live.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama recommends reciting Tara mantras. Additionally, click HERE for advice from our precious teacher, Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

We continue to think of all of you around town, in the state, and around the globe, managing the stress and anxiety of this time. We are working on more ways to connect virtually, please drop me a line if there is something that we could offer that would be helpful for you and your families.

We send lots of love and prayers for healthy bodies and healthy minds!

Big love to each and every one of you,
Mer Stafford,
Executive Director
