Meditation and Dharma Talk with Mary Stancavage (Hybrid)

December 18 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

This hybrid Sunday Meditation and Dharma Talk will be held simultaneously in-person and live online from 4:30 p.m. until 6 p.m.

Insight Community of the Desert will continue to be able to experience the gifts of sangha through in-person practice and teaching one Sunday per month. Upcoming in-person events will be held at Unitarian Universalist Church of the Desert in Rancho Mirage.

We will meet both online and in-person on the *third Sunday of every month at 4:30 p.m.* Our in-person meet up next month will take place on January 15, 2023. Join us whichever way you feel most comfortable. Everyone is welcome.

There will be time for meditation, a dharma (teaching) talk by one of our regular or guest teachers, and time for your comments and questions.
