Heart of the Dharma Spring 2021 Survey
Hello and happy spring! Whether you are a Heart of the Dharma regular or an occasional visitor, we would love to hear from you. Please complete the following survey and share with us what is helpful, what is not, and what interests you. All our gratitude for your response.
As you know, Heart of the Dharma’s mission is to provide an avenue to meet with the liberating teachings of the Buddhist tradition.
The purpose of this survey is twofold:
1. To ensure what is currently being offered is beneficial.
2. To explore and collect interest in potential future offerings, in order to best support you on your spiritual path.
This survey will take approximately 5 minutes and is anonymous. You may voluntarily provide your name, if you choose.
Thank you, in advance, for taking the time to offer your input.
