Please join us on Sunday, Oct. 28, at 1:00pm for the inaugural meeting of the PIMC Engaging the Dharma Initiative.
This meeting is open to anyone in the PIMC sangha (community) who wants to help shape this program. As a sangha, we seek to find ways to engage with the needs of the world outside of our Dharma center. To actively reduce suffering and give support and compassion where it's needed.All posts »
