Thursdays at the Quaker Meeting House, 1831 Fern Street. The meditation begins at 6:50pm, in respect for the other practioners and yourself, please arrive on time so you have time to arrange your cushions and settle peacefully.

If you happen to be running late, please wait until the bells and chanting have finished before entering the meditation hall. Thank-you for understanding and supporting our practice.
