Dear Friends,

I am so sorry that I have been away from my computer for the last week....I am still not at my computer but I was able to look at email and found that the Update that I tried to send from my phone did not arrive in my email...In case it did not arrive in yours...I am resending just the listing of gatherings.
Tonight there will be a gathering at the home of the Van Horn's at 6 PM. There will be sitting/walking/sitting meditation, a Dharma talk and sharing. All of the directions and contact information are below.
The Van Horn's are also offering a Half Day of Mindfulness on Saturday , May 3. It is a wonderful opportunity to be together and deepen practice. I hope you will be able to attend.
