Most Sundays are open for the public to come and practice with the monastic and lay practitioners of Deer Park Monastery.
This is a wonderful opportunity to come together as a spiritual family to remember and celebrate a great teacher: Shakyamuni Buddha. We will celebrate in such a way that the capacity for great understanding and compassion in us will be nurtured. As we come back to the present moment, through following our breathing and mindful steps, we are able to touch joy and peace. We are continuing in the footsteps of the Buddha.
Please come and join us for this Day of Mindfulness. We will gather together, sitting joyfully inside the Ocean of Peace Meditation Hall at 9:15 am. We hope you are able to participate in all the scheduled activities this day.
