Join Us

for meaningful teachings and discussions on Sunday evenings, 6-7:30ish pm.


Study Series Shantideva’s Way of the Bodhisattva


We will proceed chapter by chapter, taking as much time as we need to study, absorb, and discuss the teachings before moving on to the next chapter. The opening talk will establish the history, context, and background for the text; we will begin exploring Chapter 1 on April 2.

There are no prerequisites for this course: everyone is welcome to join at any time. It will be helpful, though not required, to have an English translation of the text at hand during both the talk and discussion. Please see the recommended study resources for further support.

Wood is offering lojong teachings for sangha in South Africa. These gatherings are scheduled on the first and third Sundays of the month at 6 PM during US daylight savings, South African time (10 AM Mountain Time). After daylight savings time ends, November to March, these gatherings take place at 9 AM Mountain Time. The 6 PM South African time remains the same year round.

This option offers a different time for people who have difficultly making it on any given Sunday evening, and is also an opportunity to go back to earlier lojong slogans they may have missed.
All are welcome to join us at these online gatherings.

if you’re interested.

Needless to say, it’s fine to attend both gatherings!

We’re fortunate to have access to many excellent Dharma books. The few featured here represent a more or less random selection of those we’ve found particularly helpful. The emphasis on Chögyam Trungpa’s and Pema Chodron’s books reflects the inspiration of our lineage.

Private Dharma Counseling

Dharma counseling is a form of personal support based on Buddhist insights, ethics, and practices. Our teacher, Jennifer Woodhull, has an active Dharma counseling practice. Please indicate in the “message” space of our contact form that you would like to explore this possibility.
