Saturday Meditation sessions are no longer being held. I'd like to express my appreciation for all the people who have come and sat with me over the last six and a half years of Saturday meditation, and for those who honored me by sharing something of their lives during the dicussion periods. --Alan Z.

Sunday Satsang will not be held on  October 26.

Optional drop-in meditation period from 9:40 to 10:10 a.m., followed by satsang to about 11:30 a.m. You may come in quietly at any time during the meditation period and take a seat.
