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.

Event Dates: Every Friday Evening
Join us every Friday evening for a session of collective practice, including meditation, chanting, and a special puja on the Fridays closest to the full moon. Most evenings are from 7:00 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.. Evenings that include a full moon puja are from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Each evening includes a combination of meditation (either the Mindfulness of Breathing or Metta Bhavana practices) with some minimal explanation for any newcomers, a short reading, and some chanting, followed by a short relaxing period of tea.
Everyone who is familiar with the Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana meditation practices are welcome to attend.
Upcoming puja evenings are: April 18, May 9 (Buddha Day Celebration), and June 13 (more…)
Event Dates: Saturday April 19, 2014 – Saturday April 19, 2014
Please join Narottama and Perry Blass for a Men’s Practice Day on April 19th, from 9am to 3pm at Akasaloka.
The day begins with meditation at 9:15am, then continues with a discussion on the importance of being mindful and aware as we navigate the world. Practicing mindfulness, combined with an ethical compass, can help promote integration and well-being as we see ever deeper into the interconnection of all things. All men are welcome. There will be a free lunch included.
Please note: There are two new changes to our Men’s Days – registration is now required for the day and there is also a sliding scale fee to support Aryaloka. We want all men in our community to be able to attend, so if the fee will be a challenge for you, please contact the office to arrange alternate pricing.
