Buddhist Action For Peace
Wednesdays in June, 7pm to 8:30pm.
Our theme for 2022 is Deepening Practice, and this June we join Triratna Centers around the world in Buddhist Action Month. Each Wednesday we will look at how members of our SFBC Sangha engage with their practice during these demanding times. There are so many different opportunities calling for us to care, to take some action - whether this be internally, in our meditations, or out in the world. It promises to be both inspiring and connecting!
Each week we will post a quote, website, and questions or suggestions for actions here.
Registration - please register below so that we have your information in case of changes to the Sangha Night program or zoom link. You only need to do this once.
Donations: Please consider making a donation or joining our Dana program to help support our teaching. More information on this page.
If you would like to attend in person please check you can agree to our current safety requirements listed here. We will ask you to confirm when you arrive.
We will still offer the zoom option each week.
