As of 07/03/22: Sunday Service Temporarily Returns to Zoom-only

We recently learned that Red Clay Sangha needs an Occupancy license to hold RCS services and other activities in our new space at 3315 Chamblee Dunwoody Rd; we applied for said license on Wednesday, June 29th, and were told it will take 3-4 weeks to process and approve. We are so sorry for the inconvenience and short notice RCS members and friends! We did not know we needed such a license until we received a notice on our door last week (around June 22nd). 

Please bear with us as we get all our P's and Q's in order at the new space, we are excited about it and eager to return. We will send a notice out about returning as soon as we receive approval from the Chamblee Business Support team. In the meantime, please use the Sunday Service zoom link below to join us Sunday mornings via Zoom.

The Wednesday evening Reading Group will continue as before using the Wednesday Zoom link below. We are searching for an interim alternative for the Tuesday evening Tai Chi class and will send an email out when one is found. Thank you for your continued support, Members and Friends! Please enjoy a safe and happy 4th of July weekend!

A note on Zoom etiquette: you will be on mute when you join a meeting: please remain on mute while sitting, and during discussions unless you are talking. (With many participants background noise can be a real problem, and it is sometimes tough to tell where it's coming from.) Please place hands together or use the chat window to indicate you wish to talk, and wait on the leader to call on you before speaking. (Talk over can be a problem with Zoom.) The line will be open 15 minutes early if you would like to call in early to make sure you are properly set up. Email garethjohnyoung@gmail.com if you need help setting up.

Announcement

We are delighted to announce that one of our founding members, Gareth Young, has received Dharma transmission in the Thai Forest lineage from his teacher, Lisa Ernst. The transmission ceremony took place at our recent retreat in Blue Ridge. You may read more about the meaning of the ceremony and about Gareth here.

About Red Clay Sangha Red Clay Sangha offers Buddhist practice - meditation, chanting, study and fellowship - in Atlanta, Georgia. We have no central tradition or teacher, but rather draw from many traditions and lineages and have a sangha (community)-oriented approach to teaching and ministry. The sangha is dedicated to bringing the compassion and wisdom of Buddha's teachings and practice to all without disparagement. Each voice forms our song and each face our picture.

New to Red Clay Sangha? Welcome! 

Please enter quietly, remove your shoes and join in the meditation session if it is in progress. Modest, comfortable clothing is appropriate. Please do not wear fragrance. Please be quiet in the parking lot and entryway. Once entering the meditation hall, please remember that this is our sacred space. 

Schedule - our regular weekly activities are on Sunday morning and Wednesday evenings. We also have a monthly Women's Circle and frequent special events, including retreats. Please see our "Programs" pages or the calendars below for more information.

Introduction - an overview of our general practices, and basic meditation instruction is available before each session (please arrive early and ask the attendant for assistance)
