Postponing in-person classes and events or moving to online meetings

The SFBC has made the decision to cancel or postpone all our in-person classes and events from now through at least the end of March. We'll continue to assess the situation as best we can, but right now this seems the most helpful thing we can do to help slow down the spread of the coronavirus (COVID 19), and protect our more vulnerable sangha members. 

Sangha Night will be held online through zoom.  

Thursday drop-in classes and morning meditations are canceled through the end of March. 

Bodhicitta: The Heart of Buddhism, new talks by Vessantara

Vessantara led a retreat at Adhisthana exploring the Positive Emotion aspect of the Mandala of Spiritual Practice, taking it into the territory of bodhicitta - the union of compassion and wisdom. With bodhicitta, our heart is open to life and knows its true nature. So how do we open our heart? Do we prise it open, coax it, persuade it? Does it somehow open us? How do we avoid being overwhelmed when it does open? What other challenges come up, and how do we meet them?
