Meditation in the Hondo

Sunday Mindfulness Meditation


Come and join us for a serene Sunday morning experience at our Hondo (temple)! We warmly invite you to take a moment to pause, sit, chant, and listen in our Mindfulness Service, starting at 8:30 AM.

Our caring minister or minister assistant will gently guide the group through calming sitting and standing meditations, followed by the soothing practice of chanting as a form of sound meditation, and an enriching Dharma message to uplift your spirit. We can’t wait to share this mindful journey with you!

Sunday Friends & Family Service


We warmly invite you to join us every Sunday morning for our Family Service! It’s a beautiful gathering where we come together to chant, share selected sayings, lift our voices in song, and absorb the wisdom of a Dharma talk.

Whether you’re a longtime member of our community or a first-time guest, you are most welcome to join us for these heartwarming services. We look forward to sharing this special time with you!

Enjoy With Your Whole Family

Our Dharma School teaches our children to live a life of compassion and selflessness (vs. selfishness), be kind to others, and to respect others and all beings.
You’ll find that whether young or old, the temple spirit can be felt through the Sangha (our members) who embody the Dharma (Buddhist teachings) in everything we do, from our services to the volunteer and outreach work we do.
