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 with our beautiful Hanuman, in the light of Neem Karoli Baba, the Buddha, Ram Dass, The Mother, and Ramana Maharshi, as well as 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 we sit on supports us as we explore the space of the heart 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, and practice in this circle.

Chanting and kirtan begin at 7:00 pm for an hour. Then a short reading or dharma reflection leads us into silent sitting. We close with poetry, conversation, and sweet prasad. 

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

By donation.
