2018 Calendar of Classes, Retreats & Study Groups

With the move to our new dharma home at 4936 NE Skidmore St, 2018 will be a year of adjusting to the new space and enjoying the rewards of many years (decades) of work towards this dream home of ours.  We are all so grateful for the volunteer efforts and expertise of many who have worked (are still working) to make our space beautiful and functional.

This is also the year that the Three Year Retreat comes to an end at SCOL—a cause for celebration and a pause for looking forward to future happenings at SCOL.  May our good fortune continue!
