Obon Service (in person only)
August 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
This is an opportunity to practice in person with our sangha. The daily service and meditation is an opportunity to engage the body, speech, and mind in practices that foster awakening. The service is open to those with all levels of experience with Buddhism, whether you’ve been practicing for years or are just curious to learn more.
Here’s the flow of the morning:
9:00-9:20 Welcome and a brief talk about the Obon period.
9:20-9:40 Obon Chanting Service
9:40-10:35 Two full periods of seated meditation with a brief standing meditation
10:35-10:50 Brief dharma talk and concluding services
10:50-11:30 Optional social time with sangha members
