DIRECTIONS: The Satellite,6265 Highway 9,
Felton, CA 95018. It is between The White Raven and Don
from New Leaf on Route 9 on the downtown strip of Felton.
(www.thesatelliteinc.com). If you arrive before 7PM there will be
someone to let you in the front door of the Satellite. The doorway
directly to our
room is in the back of the building. If you arrive after 7 PM
(after the meditation has started), you will need to walk to the back
entrance and let yourself in. You can access the back area
through a narrow alleyway between The White Raven and Chopstix
Restaurant. PARKING: There are about 6 parking spaces near the back entrance
that are accessed from Gushee St. which runs parallel to Route 9. You
can also park on Gushee St. (There are signs that say no parking but it
is legal.) If you park on the Route 9 side and arrive before 7 pm, you come to the main entrance of The Satellite.
DONATION: Suggested sliding scale donation $5 - $15 (more or less is accepted). No one is turned away due to lack of funds.
HISTORY OF DHARMA IN FELTON: One of the earliest centers for Vipassana meditation in the West was in Felton (before Insight Meditation Center and Spirit Rock). The center was called the “Dharma Vihara” (Home of the Dharma) and started by Jack Kornfield, Joseph Goldstein, Sharon Salzberg, Robert Hall and others. In honor of this history, I am considering renaming our group, “The Dharma Vihara Meditation Group”.
