What we're about

Please "read more" to see some resources for this time of physical distancing.

We at Harbor Dharma are sharing and exploring the many methods, lineages and traditions of Buddhism that have helped millions of human beings to wake up. We are committed to the practice of meditation, to study the teachings of the Buddha, and to helping each other bring this practice into our daily lives. It is there that we find what it means to be awake and aware, right in this very moment.

During this time of physical distancing, we'd like to share other resources that we find particularly helpful:

Tara Brach, a well-known Dharma Teacher, offers this free course in managing fear and anxiety:
Mindfulness for Anxiety and Sleep: Learn Practices that Help Reduce Stress and Calm Fears (https://tarabrach.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=6f353ae47dbfb361d6d70452d&id=6d2ae12c31&e=52979fa149) on Udemy. Use the code ANXIETY-FREE-2020 at checkout.

We welcome beginners, seasoned meditators and those curious about Buddhism to attend our meetings. Harbor Dharma creates an open, respectful and supportive atmosphere aspiring to help us find our own path to freedom from suffering and the joy of liberating ourselves from the illusory perceptions of the dualistic mind. Through the study of the Buddha's teachings and commentaries of realized masters we deepen our understanding of the words. Through contemplation and meditation we come to know the meaning of the words. Although our conversation can be quite rich and authentic, it is not a group therapy session. We take care of ourselves in these discussions and do not expect answers to our problems. Those come from our own intelligence anyway.

We are a non-sectarian practice and study group and welcome all regardless of religious or spiritual background or affiliation. Come and visit!

May all beings benefit!
