Packing Up the Center to Move


Saturday, May 11 & Sunday, May 19, 2013 at 12:30 PM

As Portland Friends of the Dhamma continues to investigate options (rent, lease, purchase) of a permanent home for our community, we begin by renting space from Dharma Zen Rain Center as of June 1st.

Dharma Rain Zendo
Dharma Rain Zen Center, 2514 SE Madison

Save the dates! We are packing up!
Saturday, May 11, 12:30 – 6:00 PM After the Aloka Vihara nuns meal offering
Sunday, May 19, 12:30 – 5:15 PM Before the Ajahn Sucitto tea

Calling all library and kitchen packers, and people of ability who can move furniture. If you come every week, if you only came once, or haven’t been able to make it in a while—you all are encouraged to join the packing party. Sign up in the kitchen or contact Charla to let her know you are coming.

We will be focusing our packing and moving activities on May 11 and 19 to work in harmony with the monastic visits and the momentum already at the center. We will have a “pod” delivered to the parking lot for ease of packing, and for storage.

The final two weeks at the Sellwood center there will still be the regular weekly program offerings where more can be incrementally added to the pod, and the final Friday night in Sellwood on May 31st.

We all have a chance to share this experience of anicca, dukkha, anatta together while practicing the Dhamma at all times. We welcome all the time and energy you can offer toward the move.
