The “Dharma Lounge!” is a special monthly meditation gathering that includes a delicious blend of deep Stillness/GUIDED MEDITATION, illuminating Dharma talk, live music, and MysticalPOETRY (often featuring honey-drenched appearances by the premier Rumi and Hafiz reciter in the West, Eric Schneider!)
Later in the evening, we swithch gears and enjoy time of simply basking in the beauty of each other's Presence and the Divine, Loving Space we've created together (i.e., we hang out, chill, schmooz and possibly dance a bit!).
Some snacks and drinks are provided, and we encourage everyone to add to the bounty in any way you feel inspired.
Some cushions available, but please bring your own if you have one.
You can arrive as early as 7:15 and definitely try to arrive by 7:30. Sorry, no admittance after 7:45.
...hope to see you there!
