What we're about

Anyone interested in starting or furthering their mindfulness/meditation practice.

While this tradition is Buddhist, you do not need to be a Buddhist to join nor will anyone try to 'convert' you. The teachings are practical and relevant to anyone seeking to bring more mindfulness into their lives.

Most of the events listed are at the SF Dharma Collective - https://sfdharmacollective.org/ - in cyberspace for now, formerly and in the future physically located in San Francisco.

We are a community-run meditation center seeking to make meditation accessible to everyone. We wish to create and sustain communities of healthy, accountable, wise and compassionate people from every walk of life. We welcome people from all racial, economic, sexual, social, political and religious backgrounds and believe that the path of awakening is attainable by all and should be available to all.

All are events are freely available to all, and we ask for donations as you are able to sustain our teachers and our operational costs. https://sfdharmacollective.org/donate

Mission Dharma: Meditation and Talk with Howard Cohn

The Episcopal Church of St. John the Evangelist

Mission Dharma is a sangha led by our teacher Howard Cohn (http://www.missiondharma.org/our-teacher---howard-cohn.html) that has gathered in ​the Mission District of San Francisco for over 30 years. Sangha members come together as a community on Tuesday nights for meditation and to hear Buddhist teachings. As a sangha, we support one another in the process of awakening in order to live our lives with more mindfulness, compassion, and joy. Everyone is invited to attend. No prior meditation experience is necessary. Format: A forty-minute meditation period followed by a Dharma talk (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dharma_talk) led by Howie or a visiting teacher. Doors open at 7pm and sit starts at 7:30. Currently this is online only: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89440940094?pwd=dm1hVjQ5dUd2RGg2SnFiUG9ibmNEZz09 You can also sign up for the newsletter to get notified about when in person meetings resume. http://www.missiondharma.org/join-our-e-mail-list.html Cost: Contributions to Mission Dharma are tax deductible. In order to help cover the cost of our room rental, other weekly operating costs, and to adequately support our teachers, there is a suggested dana (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C4%81na) offering of $5-$25 on Tuesday nights. However, we want to be welcoming to individuals from all financial backgrounds and a monetary offering is never an expectation. Giving is done anonymously, so no one is ever turned away due to lack of funds. If you wish to offer dana, you are invited to offer it online (http://www.missiondharma.org/dana---donations.html) or on Tuesday nights. ​
