Practice Days

Practice Days are a chance to come together as a sangha for meditation, study, and the building of spiritual friendship. They are an excellent way to deepen one's relationship to other sangha members, and to strengthen one's experience with, and understanding of, the Dharma.

buddha-rupa4_300px_squareFriends Nights at Aryaloka are from 6:45-9:00, when we gather to meditate and explore aspects of Buddhism through workshops, talks, study, ritual, or discussion. The emphasis is on practical application of Buddhist principles in our own lives. Although there is no fee for this event, donations are appreciated.

The 40-minute silent meditation in the main shrine room is typically not guided. (If you prefer to have prior instruction, see the Programs section for more information on introductory classes.)

An option for a guided meditation is offered in the library, after which, you can join the rest of the group for the second half of the evening.
