The Engaged Buddhism Group is focusing on actions we can take as a sangha to address social, political, and environmental suffering and injustice. Join us as we not only reflect upon how our meditation practice and the Dharma offer insights into what is to be done and how to do it, but as we determine which issues to address, what specific actions to take, and which organizations to support.

The group will meet every other Sunday from 3:00 – 4:00
Next Session: November 1st
