Refuges & Precepts Ceremony (In-Person and Online)

January 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PST

Every January, as a sangha, we chant the precepts and the Three Jewels—The Buddha, the Dhamma and the Sangha. Join our teachers, Tuere Sala, Tim Geil, and Keri Pederson for this special evening. The teachers will also share about this year’s teaching theme, Awakening Into the Paramis.

If you are joining online, please have a piece of yarn or string to use as a protection cord.

Please note, a previous email accidentally had last year’s teacher appreciation included. We will offer that at a future date.
