The May newsletter is now available in PDF format. This issue contains information on retreats and workshops through July, as well as our Ango Commitment form. Ango literally means "peaceful dwelling," and this year will last from May 1 through August 6th. Ango is a time to deepen our commitment to practice--to attend retreats and other activities, offer dana, study the precepts, or simply to commit to a regular weekly schedule of zazen. To complete your form and to read about other Center activities, just click here.
The February, 2006 newsletter has been mailed and is available here as well. It includes the calendar through the end of April, information on upcoming Precepts classes and workshops, and more.
