*Clear Mountain Buddhist Monastery: Community Meditation, Teaching, & Coffee Social
November 13 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:30 am on Saturday, repeating until December 31, 2022
SATURDAYS, 9:30 A.M. – 11:30 A.M, Bloedel Hall
Please note: Occasionally, due to a conflict in Bloedel Hall, this meeting is moved the Carriage house.
Saint Mark’s Cathedral cathedral is the host this meeting of the Clear Mountain Buddhist Monastery community.
Join for a morning of meditation, teaching, and spiritual conversation over coffee! Each Saturday from 9:30 a.m.–11:30 a.m., local practitioners gather together in the Saint Mark’s Cathedral Bloedel Hall at 1245 10th Ave E. (enter through the back of the cathedral) for a community meditation, teaching, and coffee social. Gatherings begin with a guided sit from 9:30–10 a.m. designed to accommodate and empower a wide variety of practices, from Buddhist meditation to centering prayer.
The morning continues with a Dhamma teaching and Q&A from 10–11 followed by a chance, for those who want, to discuss life and practice over coffee from 11 – 11:30 am. If they wish, visitors may also bring a small food offering for the monastic meal.
Those unable to attend in person may tune in live via Clear Mountain’s YouTube channel. In the spirit of Dhamma, all teachings are offered completely free of charge, with nothing expected in return.
