Sangha Description: 

We meet on Monday evenings at 7:00 pm. We sit for 40 minutes, starting promptly at 7:00 so please arrive at 6:50 or so. After the sit is a Dharma Talk is given by either Guiding Teacher John Travis or Teacher Heather Sundberg, or CDL's Maeve Hassett or Mary Helen Fein or a visiting teacher. The meeting ends at 8:30pm.

We also meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday evenings of the month at 7:30 to 9:00 with a similar structure, but more interactivity and creativity. 

The group welcomes everyone. If you are not experienced, just ask the leader to guide the start of the meditation so that you will know what to do.

There is no charge for coming to the group. A donation basket is put out to welcome contributions to pay our rental of the yoga center. Some visiting teachers live from donations; when they come to speak to us, we put out a second basket and request that everyone give generously to support their dedication.

There is often some discussion at the end of a talk, and the group is lively and often inspiring.
