Letter Writing to Buddhist Inmates Training

The Prison Outreach is adding a new way to join in- through writing letters to a Buddhist inmate. We are collaborating with Inner Peace Prison Dharma and Urgyen Pete Machik Potts. Rime members came together for the first training on Sunday, April 23rd. This training helped not only prepare members on what to expect as a volunteer and provide guidelines to know, but also to offer a way to support each other. If you are interested in becoming a part of this new program, please email prison.outreach@rimecenter.org.

Support the Jindak Community to Meet Our Goal

With the increase in expenses from the last few years donations are no longer enough for us to break even after we pay our rent and utilities. We are challenging our Sangha members to help us meet our basic financial obligation by signing up for our Jindak Community. Our Goal is to raise $5,500 through the Jindak Community on a monthly basis to meet our basic needs of rent and utilities. The Rime Center has both ACH and Paypal options for you to support us in meeting our goal. If you’re not comfortable with a monthly commitment, there is a donation box to the right as you leave the shrine room.
