DHARMA² taps into the enormous power, wisdom and compassion that co-arises when to 2 or more people gather with the intention to be mindful. Every Monday we meditate in dialogue and reflect on Buddha’s teachings to gain insight into how relational suffering is created and how we can release this suffering. All are welcome!

These evenings provide an opportunity to apply the teachings of mindfulness and compassion directly to interpersonal relationships and communication. The format offers community connection, alongside meditation and facilitated activities that include speaking, listening, and relating. Learning to connect with greater presence opens up possibilities for ease, joy, and healing. And for those committed to the Buddhist path, these practices help deepen the application of teachings to daily life.

Fee by donation, no pre-registration necessary: Suggested starting donation is $15 but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds. For this event all donations are split evenly between the teacher(s) and NYI.
