White Lotus

About Us

The overarching purpose of our practice is to help us achieve a clear, direct state of mind and being in which dukkha can find no place to take root. Since this state does not depend on anything outside ourselves, no place or date is any more “religious” than any other. Times and locations of our gatherings are a matter of convenience, tradition and need.

We gather weekly on Wednesdays and Thursdays for meditation and discussion (sometimes Dhamma talk or a presentation).

Wednesday evening 7:00 to 8:45
