We meet at 10:00 AM on the first and third Saturdays of the month at the Tucson Community Meditation Center. We invite you, your family, and loved ones to visit our practice.
For those joining us this Saturday, January 21st, for our 3rd Saturday of the month Upaya Sangha of Tucson meeting, we will meet from 10:00 am to noon, and our meeting will include brief sutra chanting, sitting meditation (Zazen), participant check-in, announcements, and a brief tea break. After this, Sensei Al will be giving a dharma talk on “Living a Larger Story.”
For those of you who may be participating in the D.C. Women’s March or the Tucson March Saturday morning, please know that the sangha will be gratefully holding you in our hearts during meditation. Also know that the dharma talk audio file will be quickly uploaded to the sangha website (dharma talks page in “Resources” section) for your access.
If this is your first time to join us, we meet at Tucson Community Meditation Center (TCMC), 1231 E. Edison St., one block south of Grant, just west of Mountain, on the north side of the street. We meet the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month. There are plenty of zafus (meditation cushions) and chairs.
Parking reminder: It’s important to the future of TCMC to observe mindful parking by not parking on the same block as the Center and by leaving an empty parking space in front of the homes on the neighboring blocks. Please reserve TCMC driveway parking for people who cannot walk far.
Please help us to accommodate our members who are chemically sensitive to fragrances or other scented products. Thank you for not wearing perfume, aftershave, or similar products.
Also, please don’t forget to regularly check the Community Page of this Sangha Website for new announcements.
