What we're about

If you are interested in expanding and deepening your meditation practice, join the Peninsula Sangha on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 - 7:45 PM. For our purposes, a Sangha can be defined simply as a spiritual community with a focus on practicing mindfulness, meditation and learning together about Buddhist practices to increase awareness and raise consciousness.

This meetup group is currently meeting via Zoom and begins with a 25-minute silent, unguided meditation "sit" (practice), followed by a shared spiritually-oriented discussion about a different dharma reading, video, talk, article or podcast each week.

This newly formed Sangha is comprised of a circle with a Facilitator which rotates monthly. Each month, a member of the group volunteers to be the "facilitator" who chooses a spiritually-oriented reading (from a book or article), audio or video to be shared, begins and facilitates the Sangha through the session and can bring a poem to read or recite together with the group.

If you are tired of having to drive to Seattle or Tacoma or some other place in Pierce, Kitsap or King County to participate and practice with a Sangha, this may be the place you've been seeking.

The Five Invitations are:
1. Don't Wait.
2. Welcome everything, push away nothing.
3. Bring your whole self to the experience.
4. Find a place of rest in the middle of things.
5. Cultivate don't know mind.

This Tuesday, we are discussing the reading from the third invitation "Bring your whole self to the experience", which can be accessed here:
