The Port Townsend Sangha has weekly meditation sits, offers introductions to meditation, and sponsors non-residential retreats. We are located in Port Townsend, WA and meet at a fully wheelchair-accessible site.
While our focus is on vipassana, or Insight Meditation, we welcome anyone who wishes to sit with us in silent meditation and is interested in the dharma.
Our next Meditation Day will be Saturday, December 10th, at the home of Glo and Tom in Port Townsend from 10am – 4pm.
This will be a silent day of sittling and walking meditation practice with a recorded dharma talk in 2 parts by Tara Brach. We will listen to part one in the morning and Part 2 in the afternoon. Continue reading
