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/. All our classes have been virtual since the beginning of the pandemic and will continue to be offered via Zoom. In addition, we are slowly opening our new physical location: 2929 24th Street 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

We are a peer-led movement using Buddhist practices and principles to overcome addiction through meditation, self-inquiry, and community. The intention and purpose of this group is to support people’s recovery and to discuss ideas and questions directly related to using the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, and the Five Precepts to recover from addictions of all kinds.

The Dharma Doors

Buddhists speak of 84,000 different Dharma Doors – entry points leading to enlightenment and liberation for all sentient beings – with access to them through 84,000 different sutras (Buddhist texts), each containing a distinct teaching to ease suffering. With so many sutras and so little time, it can be helpful to have a guide to explore all this preserved wisdom.

In weekly gatherings, sutras become a springboard to understanding the foundational, the obscure and the esoteric concepts that make Buddhism the unique and diverse tradition that it is.

Join MC Owens each Sunday night as he weaves humor and storytelling with modern scholarly research to open a new dharma door through a thought-provoking engagement with Buddhist texts and ideas.

MC Owens is a Buddhist teacher, translator, and author who uses a sutra-based curriculum that draws from a variety of traditions to teach the history, philosophy, and practice of Buddhism. He teaches regularly for the San Francisco Dharma Collective and he also runs Lotus Underground – a repository of his teaching activities, audio recordings, and writings.

MC Owens opens a new dharma door every Sunday night at 7:00pm.
