Port Townsend Sangha

The Port Townsend Sangha conducts weekly meditation sits each Wednesday evening. We offer introductions to meditation, and sponsor non-residential retreats. The Sangha meets in Port Townsend, WA at the Friends Meeting House, 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.

If you would like to receive information on Sangha activities, we invite you to join us any Wednesday or subscribe to our email list.

November 15, 2017 – Join us for Meditation and Discussion

On Wednesday, November 15, please join us for meditation, tea, and a discussion of the dharma.

The Sangha will meet for meditation, tea and discussion of the dharma at 7 PM at the Friends Meeting House at Sheridan and 19th Streets in Port Townsend.

This week, after meditation and tea we will continue our exploration of the paramis with Jack Kornfield’s talk, “The Surprising Delights of Renunciation.”

What possessions, thoughts, habits and ways of being do we cling to? What might be the benefits of letting some of that go?

Everyone is invited. We hope you will join us.
