The Path of Umdze: Training and Refresher Workshop (following Sunday sitting)
with Susan Keeley and Warner Keeley

Sun November 17th: 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

An umdze is a timekeeper and chant leader for sitting meditation.  Being an umdze is a powerful mindfulness-awareness practice.  In serving your sangha and center through this form you are walking the path of a Bodhisattva, and getting to know your own mind even better.   

We will cover everything from setting up the room, opening the shrine, creating a practice container, leading chants and learning to strike that gong!  
Pre-requisites:  Members who have completed Level III or higher and have an established practice on a consistent basis, as well as all current umdzes are encouraged to take this as a refresher course.  There is no obligation to umdze after this training.

There is no charge for this class. For more information or to register, contact Anna Marie Ketelsen at
