Next Saturday, Oct. 31st, 2009, Halloween, we'll not be having our usual zazen at Hill Street Center. Instead a bunch of people from the group are participating in a Buddhist Beach Volleyball Tournament on nearby Santa Monica Beach.
Here is the schedule and other details from the website linked above:
9:30 - 9:50am Sitting meditation
9:50 - 10:30am Mindful Beach Clean Up (bring your own bags if you remember and gloves if you want them)
10:30 - 10:50am Twenty minutes of walking meditation in the sand
10:50 - 11:00am Closing and transitioning to traditional fun at the beach!
11:00 - 12:00 Warming up on the Volleyball court and sharing food!
12:00 - 2:00 THE LA BUDDHIST VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT!
2:00 - 4:00 practicing nothing to do... no where to go... unless of course you have somewhere to go.
During the tournament, you can play on the team that is keeping score for victory or defeat, cheer on your team or all the teams, or play some relaxed just for fun volleyball in the other courts.
Where: If you can do Google maps the address is: 14782 Pacific Coast Hwy, Los Angeles, CA, United States. If you are using a map, it is at the intersection of Entrada and the PCH, on the north side of Santa Monica. We will meet out near the life guard station #18.
Parking: There is a small lot right at Entrada & PCH. It is $10 for the day. There is some street parking on Entrada and there is a pedestrian pass under the PCH.
The location is not too far from Hill Street Center. If you think you might want to park at HSC and walk, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll see if I can arrange it (no promises!).
Also those of you in British Columbia don't forget the dates I'll be there in November. They're on the post below this one.
