In April 2019 we left our tenancy at the Masonic Lodge. Until the COVID-19 pandemic, our Members and Friends had continued to gather for monthly practice and other events at member’s homes. Our aspiration has been to maintain a “strong heart” of connection with those in the local community who wish to continue practicing, studying, and being together. As many others are, we currently gather online via Zoom.

Once we are able to again host public events, they will be posted on our website and we’ll send announcements via our email list (which you are welcome to join).
