Dharma Circle

  • Living Earth Open Center 5311 Southeast Powell Boulevard Portland, OR, 97206 United States (map)

Meditation, chanting, kirtan, poetry, and dharma reflection shape this weekly satsang.

We sit in the light of Neem Karoli Baba, Ram Dass, and Ramana Maharshi, as well as the Buddha, Sufi mystics, Abrahamic teachings, and indigenous earth-centered traditions.

Our dharma circle embraces human nature just as it is: holy and broken, perfect and imperfect, wild and wonderful. The rich common ground beneath us supports us as we explore mystery, meaning, and the boundless terrain of being.

Long-time meditators and first-timers, devotees and non-believers, the curious and the unsure — come on down. All are invited to sing, sit, rest, pray, ponder, and practice in this circle.

Chanting and kirtan begin at 6:30 for an hour or so. Then we shift, move, and use poetry or a short reading to lead into silent sitting.

Chairs and a few cushions are provided. Please bring whatever sitting support will help you feel at home.

Donations appreciated but not required.
