Meditation is a unique situation where you can hold the complexity of your lived experience without so much interruption or disruption. You can feel the texture of your insides: the tone and mood, the melodies, harmonies and discordant tones. In meditation, you can learn to tolerate conflict while being touched by poignancy.


Welcome to the Pine Street Sangha

We meditate in a gentle and accepting way, allowing whatever occurs in our inner worlds to unfold naturally. By recollecting what happens in meditative experiences, we develop awareness and discover our own understanding of the dharma, the teachings of Early Buddhism.

This approach is helpful for people who:

  • Have never meditated before.
  • Already have an established meditation practice.
  • Believe that they cannot meditate.
  • Are at an impasse or want more from their meditation practice.
  • Value honesty, inquiry, and independence.
  • Wish to discover new ways to engage with the dharma.
