The Sit-In takes place on first Saturday of the month from 9:00
a.m. to noon. There are three 45-minute periods of sitting meditation,
which start on the hour, alternating with 15-minute periods of walking
meditation. Stay for the whole morning or join us for just a sitting or two.
We begin all sittings on the hour, so feel free to slip in quietly a few minutes
before the hour during walking meditation.
