Against the Stream Boston
with Chris Crotty
Thursday Evenings (meets weekly)

Against the Stream Boston is a Theravada Buddhist community offering group meditation and dharma talks every Thursday night from 7PM to 8:30PM at iiPS.
ATS Boston is affiliated with the Against the Stream Buddhist Meditation Society founded by Noah Levine, author of Dharma Punx and Against the Stream. The mission of Against the Stream is to make the teachings of the Buddha available to all who are interested. 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 preferences and believe that the path of awakening is attainable by all and should be available to all.
The Dharma - the teachings of the Buddha - are offered on the basis of generosity. Likewise, we rely on your generosity practice to sustain expenses and teachers. A suggested donation of $10-15 per class is recommended; however, all are always welcome regardless of ability to donate.
