Happy PRIDE!


This month the Rime Center and the Rainbow Body Meditation Group will be celebrating pride month.

Join us online Thursdays at 7:30 pm for our Trans Buddhist Voices class. While trans, genderqueer, and nonbinary practitioners have experienced empowerment and healing through their commitment to the Three Jewels, they also share their experiences of isolation, transphobia, and aggression. In the book Transcending we will read about the firsthand accounts, thoughts, and reflections. You will need to register to get the Zoom lin.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s Message for Earth Day 2021

On Earth Day 2021, I appeal to my brothers and sisters throughout the world to look at both the challenges and the opportunities before us on this one blue planet that we share.

I often joke that the moon and stars look beautiful, but if any of us tried to live on them, we would be miserable. This planet of ours is a delightful habitat. Its life is our life, its future our future. Indeed, the earth acts like a mother to us all. Like children, we are dependent on her. In the face of such global problems as the effect of global heating and depletion of the ozone layer, individual organizations and single nations are helpless. Unless we all work together, no solution can be found. Our mother earth is teaching us a lesson in universal responsibility.
