Keeping the Love Light Shining:—All Ages Service

Buddhist Practices for Lightening up Our New Year

We have decked the halls, now we can clear the decks to make a fresh start. We will explore practices for clearing our consciousness, and resolving all conflicts with ourselves and others. We can begin anew for the new year by deepening our love and compassion for ourselves and each other.
