Shambhala Sadhana
The recitation of this sadhana is a way for us to establish confidence in our own basic goodness and to rouse the wish for all beings to recognize their basic goodness. When we have confidence in our own basic goodness and in the basic goodness of others life becomes more workable on an individual as well as a societal level. Open to all community members and their family and friends. This practice takes place on the full moon each month. Upcoming dates and times:
 
December 11, 630pm
January 10, 630pm

Sadhana of Mahamudra
This age of materialism and speed offers many distractions and seductions away from our dharma practice.

This practice takes place on the new moon each month. Upcoming dates and times:
 
Tuesday, Dec 31st 430pm (Feast)
