Our Practice

The Sacramento Buddhist Meditation Group was formed in January, 1991 as a service to the Sacramento community. Our purpose is to create and sustain a spiritual community (Sangha) and to serve the Sangha by introducing and supporting meditation practice. We provide opportunities to meet and work with trained Dharma teachers who offer a range of Buddhist practices and ideas.

Our central activity is a Sunday evening gathering which consists of a 40-minute silent meditation period followed by a talk by a visiting teacher or a Sangha member. It is our intention that presentations by Sangha members be based on their experience as students of meditation. We also regularly sponsor one-day meditation retreats.

All Sangha activities are sustained through the practice of generosity (dana).

It is our ongoing intention to build a community which is safe, open, wholesome and healing in tone and which is democratic and non-hierarchical in structure. Sangha activities are organized by a Board and various committees whose monthly meetings are open for participation or observation to anyone in the Sangha.
