Community Conversations and Events

Join the Common Ground community for time to connect around various issues that are dear to our hearts and real in our lives. We will talk and listen to each other, sharing wisdom and using our mindfulness practice to deepen our collective understanding. Each conversation will be facilitated by teachers or community leaders.
