Sangha Description: 


Echo Rock Sangha, formerly known as Tam Dharma Friends, protects the traditional teachings while making them immediate and practical. We meet from 7-9pm every week, currently on Monday nights.  We start our with a few minutes of chanting with tambura--usually the 4 Noble Qualities in English.  Our silent meditation lasts 30-45 minutes, depending on the presence of visitors who are new to meditation.  Several members have completed the Dedicated Practitioners Program at Spirit Rock, but the group is open to all levels of experience.  Dharma talks focus on practical applications of traditional teachings, including sutta study.  Check-ins give everyone time to talk about their practice. We finish with a dedication of merit practice that names people we want to benefit out loud.
