Tuesday Meditation Session – West Madison
August 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:15 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until January 1, 2023
Tuesday night consists of 45 minutes of meditation followed by a Dhamma discussion. This gathering is led by Janice Cittasubha Sheppard, who was trained at Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery as a Buddhist Lay Minister, and at Spirit Rock Meditation Center as a Community Dharma Leader.
Tuesday is both in-person and online via Zoom for those unvaccinated, or at a distance. We ask that only people who are fully vaccinated for COVID (with at least one booster) attend the in-person session. Currently wearing a mask for the in person event is optional but please bring a mask with you.

Meeting ID: 852 2815 3352
The discussion may be based on a dhamma talk, a brief reading, or a sutta that Jan will share. This group sometimes investigates topics over a period of weeks, for example, we recently spent two months going through the seven factors of enlightenment. The evening begins and ends with a brief chant and bowing. Participation in the chanting & bowing is solely a personal choice and is not required. There is also a shrine with a Buddha image, candles and incense. If you have a cushion, please bring it, however, there are some cushions here and chairs are available.
