We welcome people from all Buddhist traditions and hope they will find in our gathering an approach toward meditation and an attitude toward the earliest body of teachings that will strengthen their practice and add meaning to their traditional texts. We do not identify with nor associate our gathering with any particular tradition.

We welcome people from other religious traditions, both those seeking an alternative to organized religion and those looking to invest their current worship with fresh insight into the relevance of that worship to our shared human condition.

We welcome free-thinkers of all sorts. We trust that they’ll find in our gathering an understanding of our common experience that’s entirely rational, coherent, persuasive, and helpful, and a practice that’s eminently pragmatic. They will find no mysticism, no required beliefs, and little ritual.
