  1. Hi! I would love to go if there are available spots! It says RSVPs are closed but there may be 3 spots left? Thank you.

    • Unfortunately, that is a glitch on our home page showing the incorrect information. The day is currently full, but we’ll likely have cancellations on Friday and Saturday so check back then.

    • Hello, my Son and I really would like to join. Can I get any notification on cancellation to fill in? Thank you. Lily.

      • We don’t have a notification system, but just check the website on Friday and Saturday to see if we have cancellations

  2. It was my first time attending the first Mindfullnesss session and I am very grateful to the Dharma talk. I was able to feel at peace and I would like to join the next session.
    My mother would also like to attend. I will need two tickets. Thank you very much.

  3. I would very much like to visit on Sunday, July 30.
    I will continue to monitor availability.
    Thank you,
    Edwin, visiting from Texas.

  4. Hello, I would like to register for 2 visitors this Sunday, Jul 30. How can I make reservations?

    Thank you

  5. Hi there – the site says that an RSVP opened up but it won’t let me register. Is there any way to add a reservation?

    • That’s seemingly unavoidable glitch on our home page; the actual availability is on the event page. Please do check the website tomorrow or Saturday for more openings.

  6. where it says “vegetarian lunch for all”, is it be food provided, or should we each bring our own? thank you!

  7. Dear sir/madam,
    I registered 3 people including myself for tomorrow’s event but 1 person cannot make it. I would also like to make slight difference in the address registered for the other person who is going. So, there will be just 2 people going. I am not able to find how I can make the correction? Thank you for your advice.
