Each year we aim to offer a variety of arts and special interest events to include the whole community. 

Special Events

with Acarasiddhi
Sat, Sep 21, 2019

During this daylong workshop Acarasiddhi will share ways to connect with our natural creativity through writing.  

The workshop will be positive, friendly, encouraging and productive, with helpful and inspiring writing exercises to get us started, and reflections on the link between words and practice. 

No writing or any other experience required. Bring your curiosity and your favorite writing tools (although pens and paper will also be available if you need them).

Acarasiddhi is an author and poet, usually as Tony Press. His short story collection "Crossing the Lines" was published in 2016.  "Equinox and Solstice", his e-chapbook of poems, appeared in 2018 at Right Hand Pointing. He has also led many useful and enjoyable writing days.

Sangha (Community) Night
Wed, Nov 6, 2019

Every year on a Sangha Night close to Day of the Dead (Dia de los muertos) we take the opportunity to get together and celebrate the lives of those we have lost in the recent past.  Please bring photographs or souvenirs to place on the shrine to remember your loved ones.
