As we wrap up the first two weeks of reopening the Dharma Bum Temple, I am deeply moved by the beauty of this community. It was so touching to see all the people who returned to the Temple and many joined for the first time. The first three people I saw were in tears as they entered. This is such an emotional time for everyone, hearts breaking and yet opening up as well. It reminds me yet again how important this little place is for the community. Special thank you as well to all the volunteers who led classes and coordinated schedules to make everything we do possible.
Heading into week three, we have made some slights changes with regards to the RSVP requirements. RSVP's are only required for Intro to Buddhism and Meditation Saturdays at 11am. We also require an RSVP for the Eightfold Path Recovery Meeting Tuesday at 7pm. If you have an RSVP and can not attend, please let us know so we can open the seat for someone else. Please click here to RSVP for classes coming up these next few weeks.
As always, thank you for your patience and kindness as we manage this reopening process. It is our intention to keep everyone as safe and comfortable as possible. We also thank you for wearing masks and respecting the practice of having compassion for all beings.
