  • Please wear clothing that is suitable for yourself and others for mediation practice (such as loose-fitting, non-revealing clothing).
  • If you arrive in the middle of silent sitting during a meditation service, please meditate in the foyer until the time of silent sitting has ended. 
  • Once you have joined a meditation service, please respect the practice of others by remaining until the end of the service.
