June/July Newsletter

Welcome to the June/July Newsletter! We are continuing to offer online programming while the Center is closed to visitors. We hope we can provide support to our community in this groundless time.

At this point we cannot estimate when the Center will reopen, although we will be closed at least through June 30. We are putting together a team to prepare us for a safe reopening, and we will release information about our reopening date and new protocols for visitors when we have finalized these plans. We hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy, and we look forward to being able to welcome you back to the Center when it is safe to do so.

“Learn to Meditate” Open House
Wednesday, June 3 at 7 pm

Join us for our first online Open House! If you’d like a refresher in meditation instruction, or if you know someone who would like to learn to meditate, please join us online for a brief talk and meditation instruction followed by Q&A. This event is free and open to the public.

Please note the starting time: this month’s Open House starts at 7 pm.

Click to join the Open House on June 3, or visit our website for further joining instructions including phone numbers. Because the meeting is on Zoom, we will be enabling a waiting room. Using your name when you sign in to Zoom will help us identify you as someone who’s there for meditation instruction.
