Master of Ceremonies

Rev. Dave & Rev Jean-Luc, MCs


We practice sitting, walking, and moving meditations.  Experience not necessary.  All meditations are explained by a teacher or ministerial student.  Meditation is central to developing a practice.  Sitting in the lotus position, or even cross legged, is not required.  Just sit comfortably.  

Metta Practice

Metta, or loving kindness, is a foundational practice.  We practice Metta for all sentient beings as well as for ourselves.  May you be well; May you be happy; May you know love; May you know peace.  You may begin to notice that Metta is at the core of much of what we do.  

Dharma talks

Five teachers rotate to give Dharma talks, or the teachings of the Buddha.  They are not lectures.  They come from the heart.  


Services and Retreats are not spectator sports or classroom lectures.  During the check-in, Dharma sharing, and Q&A sessions, all are encouraged to share.  The Sangha (the group) quickly becomes a trusted circle of friends.  

Physical Activity

We include instructor led Qi Gong, nine-joint meditation, and walking meditation to keep the blood flowing and the brain fresh.
