Pet Memorial Service
We all know how much our pets have added to our lives and now we have a special way to express our gratitude. The Midwest Buddhist Temple Pet Memorial Service gives us a time to honor and remember our pets that have passed away.
You do not have to be a Buddhist to attend or participate in this Service. The significance is that you have the opportunity to remember your special pet in a spiritual way. If you would like, please bring a picture and/or urn so we can display the memory of your pet during the brief memorial service honoring all pets. After the Service, please join us for refreshments and share your pet experiences.

|Am I listening?
Learn to listen like the Buddha
Shirleen Kajiwara, Bright Dawn Lay Minister
When we learn to experience life with the wonder of a child and gratitude of an adult, we are listening like the Buddha.
Quiet the mind, reduce anxiety, increase serenity and allow gratitude to arise by learning to listen receptively – to live.
Thursdays, 6:15 pm to 7:15 pm – $10 per class (first class free)
All are welcome
