Women’s Buddhist Study Group (weekly)
The Women’s Buddhist Study Group focuses on mutual support and the practical implementation of Buddhism in order to enrich our daily lives. Our format is to check in, read aloud from our selected book, comment on, and discuss what we have just read, and then meditate for thirty minutes. Our readings about Buddhist practice and philosophy are written by contemporary writers and Buddhist teachers, and are chosen by group consensus. We are currently reading Ezra Bayda’s “The Authentic Life: Zen Wisdom for Living Free from Complacency and Fear.” Held every Thursday 10:30am-12pm in the Chapel at Chalice. Newcomers welcomed. Contact Carol Bagguley at email@example.com.
Chalice Yoga meets Tuesday evenings from 7:00pm – 8:00pm in the Rainbow Room. We teach a beginning level hatha yoga class intended for all ages and ability levels, and we welcome newcomers at any time. You should dress in loose, comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat if you have one. This is a fun, relaxed approach to yoga that will leave you feeling stretched, calm and happy. We request a $5 donation to Chalice for each class if you are able, based on the Buddhist notion of “Dāna,” or the cultivation of generosity as a virtue and a way of purifying karma.
Zen Meditation (twice weekly)
Dr. Al Zolynas, Zen teacher, certified by Ezra Bayda and Elizabeth Hamilton of the Zen Center of San Diego in the lineage of the White Plum tradition, offers instruction and meditation practice weekly. This group meets in the Chalice cottage. Everyone is welcome whether brand new or seasoned meditators.
- Thursdays 8:30am – 10:30am
- Sundays 3:30pm-5pm
Prayer Circle (monthly)
Rev. Sharon Wylie leads our monthly prayer circle on the third Wednesday of the month at 7pm in the Chalice chapel. Please come prepared to request prayer and to offer prayer to others. All are welcome.
