Shantideva Sangha Practice / Sangha Building

Saturday, June 8 @ 10:00 am 3:00 pm

We invite OI members, aspirants, OI-curious folks, sangha facilitators, and people interested in helping build the NorCal sangha community to join the lay Shantideva Sangha practice, which currently takes place on the second Saturday of each month from 10am to 2pm.

Please bring your own lunch if you plan to be here then.

This is a chance for organizers, facilitators, caretaking council members, ordained Order of Interbeing members, OI aspirants, OI-curious folks, and sangha builders of all types to gather in friendship for honest and vulnerable discussion together.

What’s really going on in the Northern California PV community? Are we on the right path? What do we need as a community to continue beautifully into the future?

Bring your whole selves to this meeting, and we will hold our aspirations and our concerns together.

You are free to join for part or all of the day.
