Support Groups

Ongoing Events

  • Those Experiencing Life-Threatening Illnesses
    Every Thursday, 1:30 – 3:00 pm
  • Those Experiencing Chronic Health Challenges
    Every Thursday, 3:30 – 5:30 pm

    Meetings of both groups include brief sittings and consideration of pertinent Dharma topics, but the primary purpose of both groups is to provide each participant an opportunity to share personal challenges, triumphs, hopes, and fears with individuals facing a similar situation. At least four days before attending either group for the first time, please contact the group facilitator, Mick Bennett, at hmbennett@sbcglobal.net or 650-368-2518.
