5-pin Bowling with OSPN

EVERYONE is welcome to join us for a fun evening of bowling at the West Park Lanes bowling alley at 1205 Wellington Street West at 6:30pm.

We play two games. The cost is $8.00, including shoe rental. It’s quite informal. You don’t have to join a team, just show up at West Park Lanes.

Please come to the lanes early—at least 6:15 or a bit earlier for COVID check-in protocols.

  • Upon entry to the bowling lanes you will be asked to sanitize your hands, wear a mask and sign in for contact tracing. You will need proof of double vaccination (letter or QR code) and ID.
  • Once you get to our alley you can remove the mask if you wish.
  • Anytime you leave our alley, you must put your mask back on.
  • The alley has added some extra cleaning protocol throughout the day (door handles, bathrooms etc.). We recommend that after every frame of bowling you sanitize your hands.

Meditations with Samten Chödrön

Join us for Friday morning meditation to strengthen your mindfulness muscles and cultivate the habit of being here, awake, alive in your life. Each Friday there is a combination of guided and silent meditation, followed by time for comments and questions.

_____________

Join instructor Thubten Samten Chödrön on Fridays at 10am.

Join us on Zoom in our special meditation room a few minutes before 10am.

Your instructor: Thubten Samten Chödrön (Nyingje Gloria Norgang, PhD). Samten learned to meditate as a teenager and it was so powerful for her that she wanted everyone to experience its benefits. She introduced it to young children with whom she worked, then with women in prison and has continued to share it in every work situation she has entered. She has been teaching meditation in various forms for more than 40 years now and looks forward to meditating with you.
