"I am deeply grateful for the community the Garden of Friends has provided and to you as the keeper of this Garden. 
I attend whenever I can and often will do so at the detriment of other responsibilities. The benefits and warmth it brings to my heart far outweighing the benefits of whatever it is that I am putting aside...


Meet like-hearted human beings, 

dedicated to peace of mind in daily living.

Currently we are meeting 

Monday, Wednesday and Friday 

at 7:00 AM (PT, Pacific Time, California) at Zoom.GardenOfFriends.com

Feel welcome to join us, feel encouraged to email me at


and be connected via email updates.

Thank you Judith, for coining the term "Garden Of Friends".
I speak when I feel compelled to share to benefit others or to ask questions which have not dissolved of their own accord. Stories are fun and can be entertaining but the real value lies deeper in the heart of this community. 
The Buddha tells us to take refuge in the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. These three jewels are present in each and every garden of friends session."

"I never felt better being in silence, than with you guys ❤️"

“The essence of community,
its heart and soul, is the non-monetary exchange of value;
things we do and share because we care for others,
and for the good of the place.”
