We have let the Friday Meditation Sangha go for now as folks are busy with other things and the local Indivisible group is helping focus activism in the Valley, go to AVPAC for more information .  

In the autumn, if sufficient interest exist, we may have a meditation series running through October/November - Fridays or Mondays late afternoon/evening depending on interest and availability. This six week course will be both an introduction and helpful for current meditators and will include specific themes and support material. Important to let us know if this is of interest. After the six weeks, we could then meet once a month with the meditation focus and weave interesting local activism into the discussion and checkin time.
