Wednesday  Meditation and Contemplative Practice
Wednesdays from 5:30 – 6:45 pm
Second Presbyterian Church

Wednesday evening is our primary teaching encounter. Those who practice with us come from a variety of contemplative traditions: Buddhist Theravada, Zen, and Vajrayana; Christian, Jewish, other spiritual practices, or none. Everyone is welcome. We come together each week to study the Perennial Tradition’s ways of Wisdom, Justice, and Compassion through Dharma talks, meditation practice, and mindfulness exercises such as Qigong.
