  1. I have aligned with a mix of Buddhist and pagan beliefs for a long time. I would like to find a group with similar beliefs. My best alignment is with Dao. I would like to find a group of people to explore this with.

    • Come see us! The Sunday 11 AM practice would probably be the best to start with. Or you could visit our book group on Tuesday night at 7:30 PM for discussion.

  2. Would the Tuesday night book study be a good place to start for someone who is new to Buddhism and in the beginning stages of learning?

  3. Hello Jason
    Sorry for the delay.
    Yes, the Tuesday night book group would be a good place to start.
    We are currently reading a book on the Four Noble Truths by His Holiness the Dalai Lama
    Come visit!
