Dedicated Practitioners Group – 2 Tuesdays a Month

Join us for the Insight Santa Cruz’s Dedicated Practitioners Group, an evening of sitting, Dharma reflections, and Q&A on two Tuesday evenings per month, 6:30-8:00pm. We’ll explore themes from the Buddhist teachings as they apply to our lives here and now, with an emphasis on practice, contemplation, and opening to the deeper possibilities of this path. The group is for self-selected dedicated practitioners – join whenever you feel drawn to do so.

Please return to the calendar to join an online session or learn of any schedule updates.
