KALA POINT: Every Monday night from 5:30 to 6:30, a peer-led meditation sit is offered at Kala Point. Participants arrive in silence and begin sitting promptly at 5:30 for 45 minutes. At 6:15 there is a short reading, and the sit ends by singing the Metta (Loving Kindness) Chant. All leave in silence.
