Our annual monastic-led Seabeck Retreat will be held this year June 9-11, led by Bro. Jitananda and Br. Wolfgang.  You can find more information and register on our website, or by using the registration forms in the Social Room.

The Thursday Inspirational Service on June 8th at 7:30pm will be led by monastics, and will be followed by a tea social and opportunity to greet the monks in the Social Room.

We are happy to announce that our weekly 3-hour meditations on Saturdays will now be preceded by group practice of the Energization Exercises. Practicing them prior to meditation is a great help in entering a calm, interiorized state of awareness. Please plan to arrive by 5:40 p.m. and we will practice outside in the parking lot if the weather permits, otherwise in the social room. On Saturdays when we have long 6-hour meditations, we will always have a break at 5:30pm during which group Energization Exercises will be practiced at 5:40pm.

The subject for today’s service is “The Oneness of Religion.”
