(8/1/21) Schedule Update: SEBC will meet for virtual meditation the first 2 Wednesdays of the month, and the 3rd Sunday of each month we will practice together in person. See calendar for more details.

(10/23/20) We at SEBC affirm our commitment to inclusivity, diversity, and interconnection. We encourage you to visit our resource list on Socially Engaged Buddhism and we invite your participation, perspectives, and solidarity, as together we undertake the hard work necessary for transformation. May we stand stronger as Beloved Community through our Dharma practice and understanding, and in our larger society as a whole.

(4/14/20) More online events for additional Weds are currently planned, which may include discussion of ideas, videos, or conversations with guests, as well as short preliminary periods of meditation. Latest schedule & info will be posted on our calendar, Special Events page, Facebook. If interested, we hope that you will join us. Please email us if you have any questions.

(3/26/20) Due to the need for greater precautions with COVID-19, SEBC will meet online through Zoom for our 1st and 2nd Wed meetings in April: email for the Zoom link to join us – will also be included in the April Newsletter. We at SEBC are sending metta to you and your loved ones during this turbulent time. If we can help, please reach out to us anytime. We look forward to seeing you online!

(3/16/20) We still plan to meet this Sunday for Book Discussion. However, our meeting will take place via Zoom (online), rather than at the Book Tavern. If you were planning to attend, we hope that you will still attend. We just ask that you: RSVP to & we will send the meeting link.

(1/24/20) We are transitioning in March to Santivana Buddhist Assembly for 3rd Sunday meeting. However, this is not an SEBC event – see Other Area Events calendar on homepage. Visit Santivana Facebook page for changes to schedule and more info.

From Feb ’20 SEBC Newsletter: “We are transitioning from the Lotus Buddhist Temple, discontinuing our regular Sunday Get-Together beginning March. This will simplify our schedule, accommodate the uncertain future of Lotus Temple, & forge a stronger connection with Santivana Buddhist Assembly (Monk Tom) – which already offers a regular Sunday service.”

(Ongoing) Please let us know if you have suggestions, feedback, or ideas on how the group can be more meaningful to you. If interested, feel free to speak with us at any meeting, or contact us at
