Join us for our Sunday practice with guest teacher, Sensei Koshin Paley Ellison. He will lead the morning practice and offer a dharma talk based on the first chapters of his new book, Wholehearted: Slow Down, Help Out, Wake Up. After we will have a book signing and a reception.

Intimacy is based on the willingness to open ourselves to many others, to family, friends, and even strangers, forming genuine and deep bonds based on common humanity. Koshin Paley Ellison’s teachings share the way forward into a path of connection, compassion and intimacy.
