NOW MEETING ONLINE (see below)

This group meets on the second and fourth Fridays of each month. It is peer led, and will develop according to the needs/desires of the participants. However, it is anticipated that it will include the following:

  • beginning period of meditation
  • discussion of relevant Dharma writings from Buddhist teachers such as David Loy, Donald Rothberg, Thich Nhat Hanh, HH the Dalai Lama, Bernie Glassman, Jon Kabat-Zinn and many others. These teachings may be in the form of articles, video presentations, audiorecordings or books.


The purpose of this Dharma study will be to deepen our understanding of how Buddhist teachings can extend to and inform our social/environmental activism. This study and practice may assist each of us in being more effective in our various individual attempts to reduce societal and environmental suffering. There may also be times when the group decides to take action as a whole on a particular issue; of course, in keeping with our 501c3 status, any such actions would be free of political/partisan endorsement or campaign activity.

We are now meeting online using the Zoom virtual meeting platform. If you are new to Zoom, click here for more information.
