Dear Friends,

Our next class has been moved to Sunday evening( oct 25) at 7 pm.
Khenpo will continue instruction on the Prayer for Rebirth in Dewachen.
There is no class on Friday evening,Oct 23.

On Sunday morning( Oct 25), there are our usual practices of Kalachakra
( this requires initiation) as well as Tara Practice, which is open for all at 10:30 am.
It’s a wonderful way to dedicate merit and send blessings for those on your heart.

Our book Study group is considering Mind Beyond Death by Dzogchen Ponlop, if you want to order a copy.
Meetings TBA.

If you know of anyone needing a roofer, Mike Prewitt re-did our roof.
He donated materials as he wanted to help support our little sangha.
His webpage is mfproofs.com and if you know of anyone with a leak, send them his way.
