Dear friends,


For those joining us this Saturday, February 15th, for our third 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, sangha-specific announcements, and a brief tea break. After this, Sensei Al will offer a dharma talk (which he originally intended to give at the last meeting that he could not attend) on “Why Are We Doing This?.


Note new meeting location: We will meet at the new Tucson Community Meditation Center (TCMC) building, 1147 N. Howard Blvd., one block North of Speedway, just East of the Loft Theater, on the West side of the street. We meet there the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month. There are plenty of zafus (meditation cushions) and chairs.


Also Note: Please do not park in the dirt area to the South of the building. This is the private property of the house next door.  A nice family with children live there and play in their front lot. There is ample street parking nearby, and a small number of spaces behind (West) the building for those with limited mobility. Please enter from the rear (West) of the building.


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 our Sangha Website (see below) for new announcements.
