Each year we aim to offer a variety of arts and special interest events to include the whole community.
Limited Public Program in January
Each January our core sangha of Mitras and Order Members take time to practice together and simplify their lives. During this time we do not offer our regular Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday classes. These will resume in February 2020.
Morning meditations will continue Monday to Friday except during the Winter Retreat - Dec 21 to 28.
Day Retreat, Sat Feb 22, 10am to 4-m
Many Suttas in Buddhism show the Buddha quietly and beautifully guiding his followers towards real tranquility and wisdom through awareness of the body. As part of our "Simply Practice" theme this month and year, Prasadachitta will explore with us the power of simply paying attention to the senses.
Our day retreats are an opportunity to get a taste of retreat without leaving the city. They are open to everyone, though some meditation experience recommended. Lunch is not usually provided but there are many restaurants and grocery stores very close to the SFBC. Please feel free to email with any questions.
