For theists nontheists, religious or otherwise. Humanists, skeptics and agnostics newcomers, investigators, and curious minded alike are all invited to join in. We get asked if Buddhism is a philosophy or a religion? The answer is both. It's a religion, but one outside of our typical experience. In the west we are most accustomed to Abrahamic religions which are grounded in matters of faith and belief. Sid's teachings are based on education and self training. Its volitional habituatin, changing ourselves through practice, by the acquisition of philosophical wisdom, individualized ethical development, and mental cultivation. Come check us out.

We seek to retrieve the original inspiration of Siddhattha Gotama, the man now known as the Buddha, bypassing the many add-ons and cultural accretions that have obscured the original teachings since the Buddha’s death, and re-root the practice harmoniously within the context of modern western ways of life and thought. We look to the earliest teachings of the historical Buddha, interpreted through the lens of the latest scholarship, drawing out their meaning within their historical context while demonstrating their value and relevance to people living in our own time.
