Tuesday, June 6th, we will not meet in person and offer our 7:00 to 8:45 p.m. program online due to temperatures over 90 degrees. Please follow this link to attend: requested, the password is 633005. 

As we move into the warmer season, please join us each Tuesday Evening in gathering together at 5090 Center Street NE in Salem, Oregon. We’ll have fans going and it’s usually a nice way to spend the evening with Sangha. If, however, the expected high for the day is reported as 90° or higher, then plan to meet us via zoom for zazen that evening. We’ll automatically cancel in-person sitting at UUCS and switch to online that night. This will be posted on our Facebook page:  and on our website:
