Honoring the traditional Buddhist practice of generosity, there will be an opportunity to offer a donation (dana) to the teacher at each class. Dana (the practice of generosity), invites us to develop our capacity to be at ease with giving and receiving, which in turn directly assists with our personal spiritual growth. Your generosity sustains the teachings to continue and is greatly appreciated.

Class flyers will appear here soon. Please check back.
