Contemplative Arts

Miksang Contemplative Photography, Third Saturday of the Month, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Miksang means “Good Eye” in Tibetan. We all have a good eye. It is part of our human makeup. We have the ability to see the world in a pure way. One that is free of preconceptions. This school of contemplative photography brings together both the art of photography, and the discipline of meditation as taught by meditation master and scholar Chogyam Trungpa.  No experience necessary.

Our club will meet every third Saturday of the month at 10 a.m.; for location details please email us .

Heart of Recovery, Mondays and Fridays, 7:00 PM-8:30 PM

Facilitators:  Dorothy DiMambro and Thomas Fitzpatrick

Heart of Recovery is open to anyone who is interested in exploring how the path of meditation and the path or recovery intersect.  As human beings we are born with an inherent ability to be present for our experience.  This innate quality can also become the basis for our healing.  Being present for our experience brings us to the heart of recovery.
