    Are you between 18 and 35 years old and interested in Buddhism?

    Are you tired of the stories that dominate our personal and public lives? Do you have a sense that there must be something else, but don’t yet know what it is?

    With discussion, exploration and meditation, plus coffee and croissants, we will connect with what is meaningful and ask what Buddhism can offer us to transform ourselves and the world.

    A new series starting May 20th!
    With: Karunagita, Dharmaprabha, Akasapriya, Aryajit, Lottie, Annie
