Join us on Tuesday, 19th February for the a full moon peace walk and meditation. We will meet at 5:30pm at East Beach in Santa Barbara (east of the volleyball courts). After the peace walk at the beach and moonrise, we will practice open eye meditation on the full moon sitting on the beach (please bring your own blanket and warm clothing). Sunset is at 5:45pm and moonrise is at 6:08pm.
Weather permitting we will be seated for open eye meditation from 6:30pm onward when the full moon is visible on the Eastern horizon. If foggy or rainy, we will gather at the Meditation Centre and proceed with the fellowship at the Centre (see below).
