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 can contact us at to discuss how we can assist. (Click here for SIMS’ excellent description of how SIMS organizes Kalyana Mitta groups.)
