The first segment of the Bodhisattva Precept Study Group, Aug–Dec, is complete. It was an intimate and lively sharing and reflecting on the precepts in our everyday lives. The second segment began on Jan. 15. We study a new Precept each month.

Everyone is welcome. Anytime is a good time for newcomers to join in.  We hope that those who want to participate will commit to attending as often as you can. (We know not everyone will be there every time.)


The meetings take place on the fourth Wed of every month, 4:30-6:00pm online on Zoom.  The Zoom space will be open for silent sitting beginning at 4pm.

June 24 "Not to speak of others' faults but to speak out of loving kindness"

July 15 "Not to praise self at the expense of others but to be modest"

Aug. 19 "Not to be possessive of anything but to be generous"

Sept. 16 "Not to harbor anger but to forgive"

Oct 21 "Not to do anything to diminish the Triple Treasure but to support and nurture it"

Nov. 18 Closing. Review , Bodhisattva Full Moon Precept taking and celebration

We will send out encouragements and readings between each meeting, so be sure to come to the first meeting, and if you're new let us know if you want to join in but aren't able to be there, we'll add you to the email list. You can email Jaune at

The study group is offered freely, and we are always grateful for Dana contributions. If you would like to contribute dana for these meetings , we encourage you to contribute to EDZ or to an organization that is doing good work for racial justice and equity ( we can suggest names if you'd like )

We look forward to offering this study of the heart of our lineage and practice together and to being with all of you.
