Interest Groups

Members of the sangha can form shared interest groups that address topics of particular interest. These groups typically take place in a member’s home on a schedule organized by the participants. They provide a smaller group context to discuss issues in perhaps deeper and more intimate ways than is possible in the larger sangha. Topics have included:

  • Women in Buddhism
  • The Paramis
  • Practicing the Dhamma in Daily Life

If you’re interested in forming a dharma study or Kalyana Mitta group, you may contact any member of the Guiding Committee to discuss how we can assist. (Click here for SIMS’ excellent description of how SIMS organizes Kalyana Mitta groups.)
