The Port Townsend Sangha meets and conducts weekly meditation sits each Wednesday evening at the Friends Meeting House, a wheelchair-accessible site at the corner of Sheridan Avenue and 19th Street in Port Townsend WA. We also sponsor non-residential retreats, conduct charitable activities with the goal of reducing suffering in our area, and offer introductions to meditation,
While our focus is on Vipassana, or Insight Meditation, all are welcome who wish to sit with us in silent meditation and who are interested in the dharma. If you would like more information on Sangha activities, join us any Wednesday or subscribe to our email list. If you have questions, please send us an email or use our contact form.
