Less Suffering, 

More Happiness. 

One Breath at a Time

Current Book Topic

Join us each Saturday at 4:00pm and each Sunday at 9:00am for an hour of meditation and lesson in the Charles Fillmore Sanctuary.

The service includes meditation instruction and twenty minutes of practice, along with a short talk and a guided meditation. 

We are beginning a new book series focused on Pema Chodron's book "Comfortable with Uncertainty". 

This book offers short, stand-alone readings designed to help us cultivate compassion and awareness amid the challenges of daily living. More than a collection of thoughts for the day, Comfortable with Uncertainty offers a progressive program of spiritual study, leading the reader through essential concepts, themes, and practices on the Buddhist path. 

Comfortable with Uncertainty does not assume prior knowledge of Buddhist thought or practice, making it a perfect introduction to Chödrön's teaching. It features the most essential and stirring passages from Chödrön's previous books, exploring topics such as lovingkindness, meditation, mindfulness, "nowness," letting go, and working with fear and other painful emotions. Through the course of this book, readers will learn practical methods for heightening awareness and overcoming habitual patterns that block compassion.

(Book available in the Unity Bookstore).

No experience necessary. 

Chairs or cushions provided.


Child care provided on Sundays in the Angel Loft.
In addition to child care in the Angel Loft, there is a Youth Meditation for ages 5-16
