One Dharma Sangha: Ongoing meditation groups in Santa Barbara, Isla Vista and Montecito
Philosophy of One Dharma Sangha: For over 15 years I have been teaching ongoing meditation groups in the Santa Barbara area. Coming from my 27-year practice as a Clinical Psychologist/Psychotherapist, I believe that we have to listen deeply to our contemporary concerns in order to translate ancient Buddhist wisdom into a language that can be utilized in the West — one that can effectively address the suffering and confusion that is specific to the 21st century. One might refer to this as American Buddhism or to Buddhism in Modernity. The qualities of wisdom-mind (through mindfulness) and heart-mind (through compassion practice) are equally emphasized. One Dharma Sangha envisions itself to be an inclusive group, being open to people from different Buddhist or other spiritual persuasions, open to cultural, ethnic, sexual, spiritual diversity. This is the group, where all the “Dharmas (paths of wisdom) flow together.”
Schedule of the One Dharma Sangha:
Radhule offers three ongoing meditation groups in the Santa Barbara area. Those evening meetings include Dharma talks and instructions, mindfulness and compassion meditations, followed by questions and conversation.
Carefully guided Mindfulness meditations, Metta/Loving Kindness meditations, as well as Compassion, Forgiveness and Gratitude meditations, go along with talks and instructions.
Weekly group meditation sittings: Everyone welcome – always free!
