Every Sunday at 9:30 a.m., we conduct Spiritual Studies outdoors under our 150 year-old “Bodhi tree.” Topics vary from week to week.  We recommend you call in advance, especially if it is a holiday weekend when we might have another event that supercedes this.  

We suggest a donation of at least  $8.50 to cover our costs and support our activities.  However, for those of you who cannot afford this, we conduct a simple work activity after the session so that your remuneration / donation can be achieved by participating in UP-lifting educational “hands-on” activities.


The listed topics are subject to change.  If a higher priority arises for a timely topic to share, we will re-schedule the listed topic for a later date.  It is best to call 2 to 3 days ahead if you wish to verify the topic.

Blank spaces after a date means that the topic for that Sunday has not been determined at the time of this posting.
