Shantideva Sangha Gathering

Saturday, October 19 @ 9:30 am 2:00 pm

We invite anyone in the community to join our practice from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the following dates: July 20, September 7, October 19, and November 16. (Note: usually the third Saturday of each month.)

We extend a special invitation to OI members, OI aspirants, OI-curious people, sangha facilitators, and anyone interested in helping build the NorCal sangha community. Our aspiration is that Shantideva will become a resource and anchor for our broad and diverse community in the Bay Area and Northern California. Gathering at Shantideva is a chance for us to gather in friendship for honest and vulnerable discussion together.

Please email Dylan if you’re planning to attend.

You are free to join for part or all of the day. Please bring your own lunch if you plan to be here during lunch.
