Emotional cocktails present themselves in meditation, you can choose to sit with them. Let them stir, flow through your system, even intoxicate you if they will. You may not feel at peace, nor will your emotions be harmonious, but you will be listening to each emotion tell its story, and that is a kindness to yourself.


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.
