Picnic in the Park

Saturday, September 18
at Fletcher Wildlife Gardens

Please join us for a casual get-together in Fletcher Wildlife Gardens that will include a meditation guided by our Resident Teacher Gen Chöyang, a ‘pack-your-own picnic’ and games for everyone.

We'd like to send a special invitation to new students who have been joining us online for the past year and a half. We’d love to meet you in person (what a concept!).

Please also feel welcome to bring family, children and pets.

Location: Fletcher Wildlife Gardens is located just across the road from the Ornamental Gardens of the Experimental Farm, and also close to the Arboretum. There is free parking. Click here for more information about Fletcher Gardens, and directions for how to get there.

What to bring with you: a blanket or folding chair to sit on, and a packed lunch (please, no alcoholic beverages)

11:15 - Meditation guided by Gen Chöyang
11:30 - Set out and introduce the lawn games
12 noon - Picnic lunch
12:30 - Back to lawn games and visiting
1-1:30 - End of event

Everybody is welcome - we hope you can join us!

If we integrate Buddha's teachings into our daily life, we will be able to solve all our inner problems and attain a truly peaceful mind.
