The Sangha of Service and Advocacy

“If people knew, as I know, the result of giving and sharing, they would not eat without having given.” ~The Buddha

On the first Sunday of each month, from 4-4:45 pm ET, dharma leaders will engage in a discussion, followed by a short meditation, focused on our commitment as dharma practitioners to service and advocacy. Topics will touch on how the dharma encourages, supports, and sustains us in advocating for social justice, equity, and human rights. 

We will meet here: ZOOM link

During each discussion, a guest leader and social change advocate will respond to the following questions:

  • What motivates your dharma or meditation practice?
  • How does your dharma or meditation practice motivate your service or advocacy work?
  • How has dharma or meditation practice opened you to greater freedom of mind and heart, or contributed to the effectiveness of your service or advocacy?
