We are an organization formed to support growth towards a deepening spiritual awareness and appreciation of life. Each of us has a unique path and we benefit from teachers and companions along the Way.  We offer multi-day contemplative retreats and zen sesshins throughout the year, and have weekly meditation opportunities.   In addition to this website, we electronically publish a newsletter three times a year and we maintain a list serve to keep members informed of Seven Thunders developments.
