Wednesday Dharma Gatherings - open to community and newcomers - draw on the sangha - the third jewel of Buddhism - as a refuge and support for waking up. Depending on the week a presenter might share a key point from the classical Buddhist teachings, a memorable passage from a dharma text, a challenge or inspiration they are working with in their own path, or an exploration of putting the teachings into daily life.

The view of Shambhala is about whole-hearted engagement in life, i.e meditation in action, not separating one's life into spiritual and secular. So how do we dig in fully and apply the teachings to our everyday lives? What can we learn from one another on the path?


July 13: Why is meditation so boring? with Janet Romaine

July 20: Practicing without Concepts with Collin Whelley

July 27: Feeding the Hungry Ghosts with Max Roberts-Zirker


Conversations will be grounded in the experience of meditation in action


Each evening includes: Brief meditation instruction and 10-20 minutes of practice, a short presentation on a dharma topic, and 30-45 minutes of open discussion. These Open House Dharma Gatherings are each Wednesday from 7-8:30pm in person at the Boston Shambhala Center. Registration is not required - just come by. All are welcome!
