4/3/2020 - Online Events: Mon/Thurs Meditation on Zoom

Monday and Thursday meditation will now be held online using Zoom led by Bhante Sutadhara.

Please be sure to install zoom on your device at least 15 minutes before meeting. For computers: https://zoom.us/signup, for devices use the appropriate install tool (AppStore, PlayStore, etc.)

The free version of Zoom limits meetings to 40 minutes which is why we have scheduled two separate meetings. They will use the same meeting ID but you will have to join each meeting separately. We have scheduled them with a 5 minute break between the first and the second. Click the links below to join the meetings.
