These prep classes are recommended but not absolutely necessary for participating in the Taking Refuge in The Precepts & Vows Ceremony on Saturday, October 14 and Sunday October 15. The Precepts & Vows Ceremony sets an intention to follow the Buddha’s teaching and to do the best we can. This is a ceremony commonly taken over and over again, as we practice to be the best version of ourselves we can be. There is no passing or failing. There’s just doing our best to practice.
