Practice Like Your Hair's On Fire

  • Long Beach Meditation

The Buddha’s Five Remembrances assure us that old age (if we’re lucky), sickness and death await us all. How does the certain knowledge of our own death inform how we live our lives as we grow older?

Samu Saturday (Day of Selfless Service)

  • St. Luke's Episcopal Church

Samu Saturdays are our new monthly day of selfless service. Through a new partnership with St. Luke's Episcopal Church, we are serving hundreds of people who don't have the means to acquire their own clothes or even take a regular shower. 

The Hot Meal and Shower Program provides indigent men and women with a weekly change of clothes, a hot shower, shave and optional haircut in addition to a hot lunch. Our volunteers help sign people up, call them when ready, and administer clothing items.

The Program also badly needs clothing donations, so please bring whatever items you no longer need - especially men's pants and long-sleeve shirts.
