Path of Sincerity Sangha
1) Weekly Group
Dates: every Tuesday evening, 7pm-9pm
Commitment: no RSVP needed
Location: Zoom / Virtual, visit this link.
***Note: due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus, we will be meeting online until it is safe to meet again at our normal location in NE Portland***
This group is devoted to practicing Insight Meditation, a mindfulness-based style of Buddhist Meditation that aims to take us deeper into a life of love, wisdom and inner freedom. We aspire to build community, explore Buddhist philosophy in a down-to-earth way, and discover the place where our full humanity intersects with a rich spiritual life.
A typical gathering includes around 30 minutes of lightly guided meditation, an interactive talk and discussion. All meditation experience levels, genders, ethnicities, ages and orientations are welcome! If you want a more detailed intro of a given week’s theme, sign-up for the mailing list or check out the Facebook page.
Cost: This group is led entirely on donation, as an offering of heart! Your presence is always the biggest gift, but monetary donations are also appreciated. If you are curious about “how much to donate,” or why it is a worthwhile thing to do, I encourage you to read this article. If you’d like to contribute, you can send donations via paypal to email@example.com or via venmo to Djsudar (last 4 of phone# are 3578).
2) Other Opportunities to Deepen Practice
