Welcome Newcomers

If you are coming to the priory for the first time, even if you have practiced any form of meditation before, we encourage you to attend the “Meditation Instructions” on a Thursday beginning at 6:45 PM. Individuals may make an appointment by calling the priory if their schedules do not allow them to come on Thursdays. It is very helpful for newcomers to become familiar with our forms of meditation and what we teach at the priory, as well as our morning and evening ceremonial services. Please allow extra time for parking when you come to the Priory. While there is no parking lot at the Priory, there is ample parking on local streets and in front of the Temple building.
