What we're about

This is a group for spiritual seekers in the Santa Barbara area looking to better themselves and their community. The Center offers a quiet, urban space for group and individual practice and meditation. Beginners and advanced practitioners are welcome. Meditation instruction is available for students at all levels. We regularly hold dharma teachings led by our resident teacher or visiting lecturers. Our resident teacher, Dawa Tarchin Phillips is appreciated for his joy, insight and clarity of presentation. He combines the unique perspective of a Western international upbringing with the traditional training of an authentic Buddhist Lama. Our center in Santa Barbara is part of an international organization of Buddhist centers and groups founded by Shamar Rinpoche. Our purpose is to explore the methods and wisdom of the timeless teachings of the Buddha so that we can better understand and work with our mind and emotions. We apply our understanding by training in bringing kindness and discernment to everyday situations. I hope to see you at the Bodhi Path!
