Dear Friends,

Given all the new information available today and based on a consensus among leadership and members we are sadly closing the Center for meditation sessions and classes.  Thank you to each of you who provided thoughtful and heart felt input.

We have changed our Open Meditation Tuesday night class information to include a ZOOM link so that people can join in.  I hope you will consider joining me as I lead the session from my shrine room at home in Drumright this Tuesday evening at 6:30 pm.  It is a grand experiment and I hope to see you there.

Just click on the ZOOM link below (or copy and paste into your browser.

With appreciation and the mind of meditation,

Deborah Bright

Spark your heart and mind through the practice of meditation.

Shambhala Vision is rooted in the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness. This nature can be developed in daily life so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society.
