The zoom link, handouts, and other announcements will be shared in the Slack channel. If you’re not already a member of Jaya Kula Slack, you will receive an invite and more information via email.
  • How to attend satsang or other teachings live in Berkeley: Drop a line to Jaya Kula’s administrator, Nirmana. She’ll send you instructions. You and everyone in your household must be fully vaccinated and masks are required. 🤗

protocols for attending satsang and other teachings in person

  1. Drop a line to Jaya Kula’s administrator, Nirmana. Tell her you want to attend satsang or another teaching live. She’ll send you instructions. 
  2. Seating is still limited due to the pandemic. You must sign up to reserve a spot. You must also fill out a questionnaire before you show up in person for the teaching. The questionnaire is related to COVID-19 safety. All of the instructions will be included in the email from Nirmana. 
  3. Only fully vaccinated people who live in households where everyone is vaccinated will be admitted to teachings in person. As of the August 3rd public order, you must wear a mask while attending satsang or other teachings regardless of your vaccination status.

We realize that you may have good reasons for not being vaccinated. However, currently the virus is being transmitted among unvaccinated folks at a rate comparable to the rate at the height of the pandemic. You are also at some risk of being infected by vaccinated folks and vise-versa. We don’t want to provide an occasion for you or others to become infected. Here is an article that was helpful to us in making our decision.

COMING TO TEACHINGS IN OREGON
