March 7: Group dinner in downtown Troy
—————————————

March 14*Sitting cancelled due to severe winter weather. Stay safe.
—————————————

March 21: Replay of the Sakyong’s Shambhala Day address – We’ll end sitting a bit early to hear the Sakyong’s remarks on the new year. 
—————————————

March 28: Group Book Reading – When Things Fall Apart, by Pema Chödrön
—————————————
Also, look for this program coming up in Albany:
How Can I Help? The Basic Goodness of Society (Weekend)
with Shastri Ellen Rook
Fri March 31st through April 2 – A great way to jump in.
