Week 1: First Meeting

Hello everyone,

Here we are in the 2008-2009 school year! Please join us for our firstmeditation meeting of fall quarter this Tuesday, September 30th from 5:30 to 7 pm. We meet at the University Catholic Center (UCC), which is located at 633 Gayley Avenue (across the street from the UCLA campus, between Strathmore and Le Conte, near the fraternity houses).

These weekly meetings are facilitated by Reverend Kusala, who leads us in a dharma discussion followed by a chance to ask questions and a meditation. Previous dharma discussions are available in podcast format Rev. Kusala's website: http://www.dharmatalks.info/. As a non-denominational Buddhist group, our meetings are great for members of all forms of Buddhism as well as those new to the practice who are looking to learn more. Throughout the quarter we will also continue to offer various events such as talks, field trips, socials, community service days, and retreats. Keep checking our website (http://www.theuba.org/) for more info on these and other events. So far this quarter we are looking at having an off-campus weekend retreat, a bonfire event, and a beach cleanup day, just to give you a taste!

To wrap things up, if you're a returning member, we look forward to seeing you again, and if you're new, welcome! If you have anyquestions please do not hesitate to ask, and if you have suggestions for events, feel free to share them with us. Best of luck in the new year to everyone!
