What we're about

One Dharma Nashville is an Insight Buddhist meditation group with an integrative approach. We were founded in 2006 by meditation teacher Lisa Ernst, who wished to offer a contemporary Buddhist sangha that also maintains its roots in traditional teachings and practices. One Dharma is at the forefront of Western Buddhism, where we have access to all of the great dharma traditions that were once segregated by geography in the East. Our practice is not wedded to the cultural forms of Buddhism, but instead emphasizes the foundational approaches that free the mind from suffering and awaken the heart to compassion. Our foundation is built on the practices of lovingkindness, compassion and mindfulness; we believe that these practices help us realize true freedom in our own lives.
