Dear Friends,

Dan Dempster invites you to join us for our new weekly meditation outdoors, meeting socially distanced in the Meditation Garden behind Henriksen Hall at Pacific Unitarian. Under the freshness of the open air and changing sky, we take the time to still our minds and open our hearts.

Sessions start at 6pm, Tuesday evenings. Please arrive early to settle in, and bring a towel or blanket to fold as a cushion on the wall or chair. You will need another blanket or shawl to keep warm if the marine layer rolls in. Places and chairs will be marked for 6′ social distancing. To respect and protect one another we ask that you wear a mask at all times. As we are outdoors, when I begin teaching I will unmask so you can hear the instructions clearly. The restrooms will be open. Please bring your own water.

Although meditation instruction itself is free, your support of a $20 donation is greatly appreciated. Please contribute what you can. For less than popcorn, soda and a movie, lose yourself for 90 minutes in guided meditation, walking and teaching in the spectacular high-definition and super surround-sound of the environment.

Newcomers are always welcome. You do not need to be Buddhist or a meditator to benefit from these beautiful practices. Bring a friend. We look forward to seeing you!

Best, Dan.
